Bachelor of Science in Business Administration - Management

Managers require the ability to adapt to a fast-paced, constantly changing business environment that can include local, national, and international business issues, and which may stretch across any sector or industry. Organizational effectiveness is a management professional's primary goal.

Managers make decisions and direct resources within business functions that may include strategy, operations, recruiting, training and development, dispute resolution, and other human resource issues. Professionals who can analyze, manage, and resolve contemporary management issues are always in demand and are a critical component of any successful organization.

The management major in the School of Business prepares students to face these challenges head-on and lead within organizations by managing organizational change, solving workplace problems creatively, communicating effectively in a diverse work environment, building and empowering effective teams, developing conceptual and administrative skills, and managing organizations as integrated units under uncertain conditions.

The management major prepares individuals to compete in a technology-intensive manufacturing or service economy. The required courses have students analyze contemporary management problems, participate in team projects, and develop skills in managing people to drive organizational effectiveness.
