Student Learning Outcomes for Business Management

Students will:

  • Know the core areas of business: accounting, management, marketing, economics, and finance in a global context
  • Analyze ethical issues that impact business decisions from economic, political, legal, and social perspectives
  • Utilize technology skills to maximize managerial decision-making from the perspective of the organization
  • Apply statistical analysis and other quantitative project management techniques to evaluate data, test assumptions, and apply conclusions to managerial decision-making

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:

  • Conceptual – analysis, problem solving, decision making, and systems thinking
  • 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.
