Management Program

The Management Major prepares students for meaningful positions in management, while providing them with a foundation for career growth. The management program is designed to provide a strong foundation in both traditional and innovative management techniques, blending theory and practice that includes classroom instruction, internships, and lectures by management practitioners. Students enrolled in the management program are expected to: 1) learn important management concepts, skills and techniques focused on managing and supervising other workers, 2) think critically, 3) analyze and solve organizational problems, 4) improve their oral and written communication skills, and 5) build their team skills. The program offered within the department will emphasize the increasing importance of information technology in business decision making, a concern for legal, and ethical and social responsibility, the quality management and control tools for maintaining a competitive advantage, the globalization of the business environment, and the management of a new, diverse workforce. Students working toward a B.S. in Business Administration with a Major in Management must maintain a 2.00 grade point average overall and a 2.50 grade point average in all business courses taken.
