Management - BS

The Management bachelor's degree program prepares students for careers in a variety of managerial and professional positions at a wide range of firms. Students learn general management concepts and have the opportunity to select a specialty area, as available on their campus. 

Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:

  • Apply the major concepts, skills and values of management.
  • Effectively communicate within the contemporary business environment.
  • Use decision-support tools to resolve contemporary management issues using ethical business practices.
  • Analyze and interpret management issues in an increasingly multicultural and multinational world.

As part of the program, students are offered the opportunity to develop expertise in the following concepts: business planning, SWOT analysis and strategic planning, business process analysis, development of human capital, financial literacy, information technology, and operations and supply chain management.  

Students may apply these skills in internships and study abroad programs. These programs are tailored based on student learning and professional goals, jointly designed in collaboration with students, faculty advisors and business partners. Students also meet with faculty advisors to determine a specialty area and career focus that best suits their desired professional objectives.

Graduates are prepared for professional management positions in disciplines such as operations, human resources, finance and information technology. Graduates may also pursue entrepreneurial paths or careers in for-profit, nonprofit and government settings.
