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.
Our business management degree program combines a strong foundation in core business courses such as management, marketing, accounting, economics, business law, and communication with a broad-based liberal arts education. Management degree students develop a basic understanding of the day-to-day operations of an organization, ethical leadership, effective management, and practical usage of various management functions.
Concentration-specific courses include knowledge of human resources management and organizational behavior. Students are not only taught basic business principles, but they are also given real life examples, case studies, and hands-on projects so that they can understand how the business world operates. Students in our business management degree program develop practical managerial skills, communication skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and business decision-making capabilities.
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 Business Management at a four-year institution.
