Business Administration (Management)
The management major is designed to provide students with a broad background in business by presenting courses covering the functional areas of business. This management degree program prepares students for leadership positions in business and non-profit organizations.
Prepared to Lead
Managers guide and direct the organization. Managers set goals and determine methods to achieve those goals. Since managers must achieve the organization’s goals through the efforts of other individuals, the practice of management is concerned with human behavior. Managers are involved with designing effective organization structures, controlling operations, making effective decisions, and communicating, motivating and leading personnel. Additionally, an effective manager must design programs to develop people’s abilities and talents, understand the role and impact of technology on the organization and be aware of and respond to social challenges both domestically and internationally. A career in management is both challenging and rewarding.
