B.B.A. in Management
Managers lead organizations by motivating, coordinating, and planning in order to achieve organizational goals. The management major integrates theory with application to help students become the socially adept, critical thinker that public and private organizations seek to lead for successful outcomes. Management graduates have a broad-based business education that will help them achieve career success, including financial management, logistics, information systems, operations, business strategy, economics and statistics, as well as a narrower focus on management topics such as leadership, organizational behavior, human resource management, and negotiation.
