Management Programs of Study

"Management” is often defined as a set of activities, including planning and decision making, organizing, leading, and monitoring, undertaken with the objective of achieving organizational goals. Our management program emphasizes the efficient and effective use of human, financial, physical, and informational resources in the pursuit of these goals.

Since the study of management encompasses a great diversity of topics, the College offers management students an opportunity to focus on an area of particular interest. A student may choose from one of four options:

  • General Management Option, which is a traditional B.S.B.A. degree
  • Business Law Specialization
  • Entrepreneurship and Family Business Management Specialization
  • Human Resource Management Specialization

Many students from other disciplines, such as engineering, communications and psychology, recognize the benefits of coursework in management and often declare business administration as a minor. Even students pursuing other business majors (e.g., accounting, finance, etc.) understand the need for enhanced management skills and often select management as a dual major.

Prerequisites for Management courses are Junior standing; completion of ENGL 1033, ACCT 2113 and 2123, ECON 2013 and 2023; MATH 1093 and 1103, BUS 1013, BL 2013, MIS 1123, and QM 2013 and 2023 with grades of C or higher.
