Management BBA


Return to Programs by Degree Return to: Programs by Degree

Program Description


Management is a broad-based discipline. The faculty offers courses for students who desire either a specific business emphasis within management or a general business degree. Most management graduates enter into an internship or training program where they can integrate their general business skills with specific job responsibilities.

Since management is a broad field, variation is allowed in academic programs. Management majors are urged to focus their course work in an area of concentration.

Total Credits: 124
