Contract Management Minor

Offered by: College of Business Administration, Finance, Real Estate, and Law Department

Every profession, business, government unit, engineering, social and environmental group has at one time or another, a definite obligation to perform a service, produce an end physical product. These same entities may also have the obligation to purchase, procure, or acquire similar offerings from those persons or firms within our free enterprise system. These obligations are executed through a document identified as a “contract.” The person who sees to the execution or the completion of the contract is a contract manager. Defense and aerospace firms, athletes and entertainers, labor unions, health care professionals and all aspects of business are involved in these contract activities. These courses are part of a new trend to professionalism in the procurement and acquisition field. Any student in any school can master the special know-how of this minor. Both business and non-business students can increase their knowledge and marketability in the job market by obtaining a minor in Contract Management.
