The Bachelor of Science degree in Management simultaneously maximizes the preparation of the student and maintains flexibility within the program. Three concentrations are offered in the Management major:
  • General Management
  • Human Resource Management
  • Industrial Management
General Management
In the General Management Concentration, students focus on the pivotal knowledge and skill areas of teamwork, leadership, change management, employee motivation, and responsibility. The student also may choose from among specific management electives to complete the major area. This flexibility allows the student to tailor the degree to his or her particular career goals.

Human Resource Management

In the program, the student learns in-depth skills in human resource concepts, staffing procedures, compensation and benefits, and conflict resolution.
