B.S. in Management

Bachelor of Science in Management

The Management degree requirements prepare students for meaningful positions in management by providing them with a foundation for career growth. The management program is designed to provide a strong foundation in both traditional and innovative management skills in the areas of leading and supervising others, communicating clearly, and being able to analyze and solve organizational problems using both quantitative and qualitative information. It includes traditional classroom instruction, simulations, "real world" internships, lectures by management practitioners and working with academic advisors to develop and implement a course of study which meets each student's individual needs.

Annual Student Data
Fall 2017 Majors: 366
2016-2017 Graduates: 74

Students enrolled in the management program are expected:

  • to learn important concepts, skills and techniques focused on leading and supervising other workers
  • to be able to collect and evaluate relevant information - ethical, quantitative and qualitative - necessary to solve organizational problems;
  • to use critical thinking skills to design and implement solutions for organizational problems
  • to improve their oral and written communication skills
  • and to build their knowledge of how to design effective workplace teams.

The program emphasizes giving students the general management skills needed in the current workplace while recognizing the increasing importance of flexibility in designing the curriculum needed so that each individual student can mature into a manager who recognizes the importance of the legal, and ethical and social responsibilities of today's organizations, acquires the skills and tools which will give organizations a competitive advantage, understands the opportunities and implications of the globalization of the business environment, and has the knowledge and understanding to manage the new, diverse workforce.

Certificate Programs

In addition to the Bachelor of Science degree, the Rohrer College of Business offers several certificate programs to management students.  Students may be interested in the Certificate of Undergraduate Studies: Management and Leadership, which is designed to give students a working knowledge of the softer, qualitative, and behavioral aspects of management and will help their preparedness for entry into the workplace.

Student Organizations

Students who study management can participate in the Society for the Advancement of Management (SAM). SAM is a non-profit organization run and built by hundreds of volunteers focused on general management skills. SAM believes that every individual interested in management should belong in addition to any other association in his/her area of specialization.
