Management, Bachelor of Science
Reach greater heights with a Bachelor of Science in Management.
Students in the Management program take the required general education courses from the University and foundations and career preparation courses within the Gordon Ford College of Business. Each student must also take 18 hours of specific Management courses to help them in deciding their area of concentration. Students then take 27 hours dedicated to pursuing their concentration in business administration, entrepreneurship, global business, human resource management, or supply chain. This allows students maximum flexibility in choosing their degree program, while also providing substantial training to ensure our graduates are career ready.
The Business Administration concentration of the Management major supplies a broad business perspective for students who eventually wish to be involved in profit or goal management responsibilities. This program of study is not intended to prepare students for a career in any one type of industry or profession. Rather, it provides the graduate with a knowledge of basic managerial skills required by managers from small business owners to corporate presidents.
The Entrepreneurship concentration allows students to develop the skills needed to start and own a business, to develop or grow an existing company, or to create an entrepreneurial environment within an organization. Entrepreneurial students are not only prepared to run a business, they are trained to innovate within existing organizations to increase productivity and performance.
The Global Business concentration is designed to increase students’ knowledge and develop the necessary skills to function effectively in dynamic global environments. Students learn business practices around the world, international economics and trade regulations, geopolitical impacts on organizations, and cross-cultural management. Students are encouraged to take an internship in a firm engaged in international business or take part in study abroad.
The Human Resource Management concentration is designed to develop skills for managing an essential resource of any organization—its employees. Because of the importance of increasing human productivity, human resource management is viewed as a key contributor to organizational effectiveness and achievement of strategic goals.
The Supply Chain Management concentration prepares students to work in the fast-paced and growing environment of supply chain, transportation and logistics. Students learn about operations, and how supply chains are created, defined, operated, maximized and examined across multiple industries.
