The Department of Management offers a program leading to the Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a major in management. Management is an action-oriented profession. Managers acquire and combine human, financial, physical and informational resources to produce a product or service desired by some segment of society.

Depending on the concentration, the major in management prepares graduates for entry-level jobs in large, medium and small profit and non-profit organizations, as well as government. The goal of the major is to prepare students not only for entry-level jobs but for careers in management. Entry-level jobs include but are not limited to: management trainee, assistant manager, customer service representative, human resource generalist, executive sales representative, account executive, operations manager, distribution manager, labor relations manager, or a specialist in human resource management. Graduates may also choose to work for a small or family business or to become an entrepreneur.

Concentrations

Students majoring in management may choose from the following three concentrations depending on their areas of interest.

General Management

The general management concentration is designed for management majors who prefer to remain broad-based in their selection of courses.

Human Resource Management

The concentration in human resource management is designed for the management majors who desire to concentrate in the human resource aspects of work force recruitment and utilization. This concentration will focus on the development of knowledge and problem-solving skills within the component areas of human resource management.

Small and Family Business

The concentration in small and family business is designed for management majors who desire careers as entrepreneurs in small and family-owned firms. This concentration will provide the theoretical framework and practical skills most often required for success in the entrepreneurial and small and family business fields.
