Bachelor in Business Administration - Management

Management majors receive broad training in human behavior in organizations and in the integration of business disciplines from a caring faculty. Management students study human resource management, organizational behavior, business strategy, small business management, and international management, teamwork and negotiations. Students graduating with degrees in management often move into management training programs such as those offered by Vavoline, Dell, and Enterprise Rental Car or careers in human resources and small business.

A suggested course to explore this career path is MGT 301.
