Undergraduate Programs


The Management Department offers academic programs about people and processes in organizations. It prepares students for leadership roles in human resource, operations, and general management, enabling them to acquire the skills and competencies needed to succeed in a variety of organizations and industries.

Students in the Bachelor's degree in Business Administration acquire a foundation of key concepts and skills that are applicable to organizations in both the private and public sectors, coupled with the technical skills needed to support particular career paths. The minor in Human Resource Management develops students who understand human behavior in organizations and how people assets can be leveraged to create value for the individual and the organization. The minor in Operations Management prepares students with interests in process improvement and how to manage supply chains. The business minor is designed for non-business students seeking to acquire the fundamental business knowledge and skills that can complement any program of study.
