(BS in Business)

Major


Management majors take a core of basic management courses and then select major elective courses in the areas of human resource management, international business, general management, or related areas of business to meet their career objectives. Because the study of management lends itself to many disciplines, job opportunities are found in profit and not-for-profit, small and large organizations. Enrollment in this major requires admission to the School of Business.

The BSB in Management comprises:

  1. 43 semester hours in general education
