Management Concentration

Effective management of people, organizations, and processes has become the hallmark of successful business enterprises. This concentration hones these skills through 21 credits of course work. The courses, while based on theory, apply “learning by doing” to enhance the student experience with practical, real world applications. The required 6-credit internship brings the student into the business world where classroom theory can be tested in a real, live environment. Often the internship leads to full-time employment offers.

Graduates earn a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Management.
