Business Administration with Concentration in Management

Bachelor of Science

The management concentration is designed to engage the student in a logistics approach to understanding the complexity of successful business leadership. This means that effective administrative capabilities are first developed through the mastery of a variety of skills learned through many disciplines in the liberal arts and business administration curriculum.

Good managers must be able to communicate effectively; reason conceptually and quantitatively; understand accounting, finance, and economics; and possess good human relations and interpersonal skills. Through the six-course management core, students are given the opportunity to apply these skills to specific management areas. Consequently, when students complete these studies, they are able to assume positions in a management track.
