Management Curriculum (BS)


Designed for the student who desires training in general business management, the Business Management concentration allows a student to take courses from a broad array of management topics, including human resource management, leadership, negotiations, and industrial management. The Entrepreneurship concentration prepares a student to own his or her own business, through coursework in small business management, new venture research, and business plan development. The Human Resource Management concentration focuses on personnel issues such as employment law, compensation, and staffing.

Graduates of this program often seek management trainee positions with established firms or governmental bodies. Others use their training to become entrepreneurs and start their own businesses.
