Management (B.S.)

ABOUT

A major in management provides flexibility to tailor your education and classes to your specific business interests. Whether your goal is to start your own business or manage information systems, this program will teach you how. Choose from one of seven different emphasis areas — entrepreneurship, general management, human resources management, international management, management information systems, operations management or supply chain management. Whichever you choose, you’ll be exposed to numerous functional areas of business and spend time examining the social, legal, political and economic environments in which organizations operate. Leaving the management program, our graduates are prepared for careers as professional managers in corporations, government organizations and small businesses. Or, if you plan to continue your education, you’ll leave with a solid foundation on which to pursue advanced degrees.
