Every business in every industry relies on its management team for leadership, strategy, problem resolution, and any number of other key accountabilities. Management is a critical function, and the success of any business depends largely on the productivity and effectiveness of its managers.

As a manager, you must develop a working knowledge of all areas within a business along with an understanding of its people, culture, and systems. Those in top management spend their time analyzing data, assessing results, solving problems, supervising and motivating employees, evaluating performance, working with teams, and leading an organization to improve its operations.

Courses in Principles of Management, Human Resources Management, and Organizational Behavior will help you to develop your own management skills by combining theory with practical business applications. You will be involved in discussions that emphasize current issues of management practice, the analysis of case studies, and problem-solving scenarios.

The Business Administration concentration in Management curriculum will prepare you for an entry level position in general management. We recommend that you build on this base with further studies toward a bachelor’s degree in Management at a four-year institution.
