Business Management Program

  • Program Overview

    From supervisor to CEO, this program prepares you to effectively manage people, programs, and processes in increasingly complex business environments.

    The business management major is designed to develop the authoritative perspective and personal leadership skills that successful business managers need. The major’s relevance to all types of organizational settings makes it a sound choice for anyone interested in pursuing a career in a wide range of business or management roles worldwide.

    With breadth enough to provide a basis for lifetime learning and continuous career development, the program’s edge lies in its ability to develop - through coursework, internships, and senior thesis - the specialized knowledge and problem-solving skills necessary for success in an entry-level career or graduate study.
