The Bachelor’s Degree

The goal of the B.B.A. with a management concentration is to develop the critical, conceptual, and interpersonal skills that are essential to employment in management positions in all types of organizations. In addition to requiring a theoretical foundation, the curriculum provides students with numerous opportunities to integrate and apply these skills in a variety of situations.

Specific degree objectives are to enable students to develop:

1) an understanding of the different forms of organizations and how they operate in domestic and global contexts.

2) an ability to analyze cognitive, behavioral, and ethical issues faced by individuals and groups in organizations.

3) an understanding of appropriate strategies for organizational effectiveness and the practical application of management concepts to address the challenges faced by leaders and members of the organizations.
