Faculty in the department have a wide range of research interests, as well as extensive experience from consulting and industry.
At this time, all of society's enterprises - business, governmental, educational, and military - are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex. There is an unrivaled and growing need for skilled managers. Contemporary managers must attend to global competition, understand complex logistical matters, maintain service quality and continuously improve as they monitor a rapidly changing business environment. In response to these needs, the management program seeks to provide students with the foundational knowledge and skill necessary to obtain and advance in professional managerial positions in both domestic and international corporations.
The Department of Management offers both a B.S. in Business Management and a B.S. in International Business & Management with a diverse set of concentrations and minors. The Management Department also contributes significantly to the College's well established Masters in Business Administration (MBA) graduate degree. The B.S. in Business Management is available with concentrations in Human Resources Management and Sport Management. Students may also choose to complete the B.S. in Business Management without concentration. The department also offers minors in Entrepreneurship, International Business, and Management (for non-majors).
Students earning a B.S. degree in business management are required to complete 121 credits, including the university core curriculum (40 credits) and the business program core (30 credits). The major allows the flexibility to a minor in a wide array of related areas such as Entrepreneurship or Marketing.
The department encourages internships, which enable students to combine their education with practical, paid work experience in their career field.
