Department of Management


The Bachelor of Science degree in Management prepares students for careers as professional managers in corporations, governmental organizations and small businesses. In addition, the program provides a foundation for graduates who wish to pursue advanced degrees in business and public administration, law and the social sciences. The curriculum gives students a broad exposure to the functional areas of business and allows each to select an emphasis area in a subject that is germane to individual career interests. The Management curriculum provides an examination of the social, legal, political and economic environments in which organizations must operate; an understanding of the functional areas of business and their interrelationships; and a knowledge of behavioral science, applied statistics, and mathematics as they relate to organizational problem-solving. The program is accredited by AACSB International.

The Department of Management offers a Bachelor of Science degree that allows students to choose from one of eight different emphasis areas.

Learn how to plan new ventures in both the for-profit and social entrepreneurship avenues.

The Entrepreneurship Management emphasis is a great opportunity to learn about all the things it takes to run your own business and think like an entrepreneur. The classes are fantastic and are very team-oriented since any business is about forming the highest functioning team as possible. Your professors are there to introduce you to methods and theories that help to identify potential problem areas before they even arise. While you are thinking strategically, you are also learning how to problem solve more effectively. Another benefit of this emphasis is that it is very flexible, and the classes you can take range from advanced economics courses to the most entertaining of marketing classes. After learning all about how to be entrepreneur, it was very eye-opening to then talk to my father (who runs his own business) and compare how he did things to what I'm learning. The similarities were uncanny. The Management Department is preparing a whole new generation of successful business owners with the Entrepreneurship Management emphasis, and I'm very glad it's where I ended up. - Reed Cawthon
