About this course
Management is the most fundamental function of a business organization. Across all industries and types of organizations, there exists a need for managers who can get things done and who can accomplish the goals of the organization with a high level of efficiency and effectiveness. Management goes beyond managing people and their work. Managers have to make sure everything is going according to the plan in order to create a successful and well-run company. Today’s dynamic business environment demands graduates who can effectively handle decisions, including working with and leading people.
The program of study combines a strong foundation in core business courses such as management, marketing, accounting, economics, business law, and communication with a broad-based liberal arts education. Management students develop a basic understanding of the day-to-day operations of an organization, ethical leadership, effective management, and practical usage of various management functions. Concentration-specific courses include knowledge of human resources management and organizational behavior. Students are not only taught basic business principles, but they are also given real life examples, case studies, and hand-on projects so that they can understand how the business world operates. Students develop practical managerial skills, communication skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and business decision-making capabilities.
The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, a leading specialized accreditation association that recognizes high quality business programs around the world. Graduates are prepared for entry-level positions or for transfer to four-year institutions. The curriculum parallels the first two years of study required by similar programs offered at four-year institutions. The student must earn a grade of “C” or better in all Business Administration (BA) courses or the course must be repeated.
