The primary goal of the Management program is to give students an understanding of the nature and capabilities of people working in organizations. Faculty and business leaders believe an understanding of management theory and research provides the foundation for effective application and practice in the business environment. This foundation prepares students for careers in management such as administrators, executives, human resource managers, management consultants or entrepreneurs.

Students pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Management degree receive a broadly based general business education. Broad preparation assists graduates in preparing to meet the diverse challenges of personal as well as professional life.
