Management

The Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in Management provides students with a solid foundation upon which to build a career as a manager or entrepreneur. Management and entrepreneurship are critical to the future of commerce in the United States and other nations around the world. Managers devise business strategies, formulate policies and direct the operations of a business, while entrepreneurs take the initiative to explore business opportunities and start new business ventures.

The management major offers students flexibility to pursue specific interests. For example, after taking required courses in Principles of Management/ Production, Human Resource Management, Organizational Behavior and Entrepreneurship, students can choose advanced electives that allow further specialized knowledge. The capstone courses (a) Business Policy and (b) Management Seminar—taken by graduating seniors—allow students to integrate and apply the theory learned in specialized courses. Overall, the Management major is designed to offer students a competitive edge in leading established and new business ventures.
