Department of Management, Marketing and General Business
The Management, Marketing, and General Business Department resides on the cutting edge of business. Our courses reflect this, with a large emphasis placed on technology in both the traditional and online classrooms, and a focus on topics that are more likely to be found in today's newspaper than an encyclopedia. Never cut and dried, our curriculum changes to reflect an evolving economy. Business Ethics prepares students for the post-scandal corporate environment; International Marketing helps students to become players in the global economy; E-Commerce shows students how to leverage technology and make money; and Human Relations trains future managers in the art of handling diverse employee groups in an era of rapid social and technological change.
The B.B.A. degree in Management has two distinct concentrations: traditional management and human resource (HR) management. The management degree prepares graduates for a wide range of managerial positions in business, government, and non-profit organizations. It also provides a solid foundation for students interested in pursuing graduate studies in business, law, and a variety of other disciplines. Courses for the management program are designed to enhance students' knowledge and skills pertaining to entrepreneurship, managerial communication, leadership, international management, strategic management, and ethical conduct. The B.B.A. in management offers the flexibility for course completion on campus, online, or a combination of the two instruction modes. The management degree with a specialization in human resource (HR) management prepares graduates who can contribute to the missions of organizations, both operationally and strategically. Human resources professionals are expected to deal with the complexities and challenges of managing today's workforce. The program's content provides a comprehensive coverage of the major human resource responsibilities, including recruitment, selection, training and development, compensation, benefits, performance appraisal, employee relations, health and safety, and strategic HR planning.
