(College of Business)
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree
The goal of the four-year Management program is to prepare graduates for careers in a variety of entry-level managerial positions in a wide range of firms. Students are expected to acquire the communication, critical thinking and ethical reasoning skills essential for today’s managers. The program’s mix of course work provides students with a broad understanding of the issues facing the business world.
An important component of the program’s educational experience is the general studies courses taught by the School of Arts & Sciences. Graduates are expected to show competencies in higher order thinking, ethics, global diversity, responsible citizenship and leadership. The following literacies should also be demonstrated: sociocultural, quantitative, scientific and informational.
Students who maintain a GPA of at least 2.75 may have the opportunity to participate in an internship and gain experiential education in their area of interest. Options are also available for foreign travel through the study abroad program.
Regardless of what industry the student chooses to enter, an understanding of key business principles is critical to a successful career, whether it is vying for a first job placement or success later in life. A student may focus on studies leading to management positions in production operations, human resources, financial services and other service industries.
Students will choose one concentration from the university’s offerings. The university’s faculty advising system will facilitate these selections.
