About Business Management

The Business Management major prepares graduates to join different types of organizations as potential managers. It consists of a core of basic business topics to give students a strong grounding in the fundamentals of modern business. Building on this core, management majors take a set of advanced management courses, such as leadership, organizational behavior, and human resources. These courses feature a variety of projects and exercises that challenge students to understand and experience the many facets of modern management. In addition to the core courses and advanced management courses, business management majors take at least four additional advanced business courses of their choosing. These courses enable students to develop proficiency in an additional business topic area, such as marketing or finance, or to take courses in multiple topic areas, such as marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, team dynamics, and ecommerce. All courses include emphases on international business, information technology, ethical business practices, and trends that define contemporary enterprises. In addition, Business Management majors may participate in the Business Department’s active internship program. Each year approximately 60 to 75 business majors gain internship experience that earns them academic credit.
