The Business Management major is a balanced program of liberal arts and management education that prepares future professionals for work in business, government, and non-profit organizations. Students learn to deal with complex issues in dynamic, changing work environments through focusing on these critical elements:

  • Human Relations – communication, interpersonal skills, leadership, and motivation
  • Technical Expertise – functional skills in financial analysis, statistical analysis, economics, and computer literacy
  • Doing the Right Thing – understanding the ethical dimensions of decisions and actions


In the classroom, students apply knowledge to solve organizational problems through discussion, case analysis, simulation exercises, oral presentations, and field research, field service, and internships.
