    The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degree in Management (MGMT) effectively incorporates theory and application in each student's learning experiences. The degree program is designed to ensure that students gain the knowledge and competencies they will need to be valued employees in consulting firms, Fortune 500 companies, retail and service industries, non-profit and charitable entities, governmental agencies, new ventures and family businesses. The degree makes possible a broad range of career opportunities.

    A MGMT student develops the ability to plan, organize, make decisions, communicate, and lead effectively in a variety of work settings. Written and verbal communication, teamwork, and problem solving are emphasized.

    BBA MGMT majors pursue a specialization, also called directed elective track, which allows for a focused area of study. Students focus their specialization in one of the four following areas.

    • Consulting and General Management - Designed for students interested in problem-solving and helping individuals or organizations as they maneuver the business environment, whether the student anticipates working in the consulting industry or in any managerial role.

    • Entrepreneurial Leadership - Designed for students interested in learning the entrepreneurial process, the role of creativity in identifying and/or developing entrepreneurial opportunities, the elements of a business plan, and the leadership practices associated with successful organizations.

    • Human Resource Management - Designed for students interested in learning how HR professionals develop and implement workplace policies and initiatives regarding employee recruiting, selection, compensation, training and development, performance management, career planning, and employee and labor relations. A career in human resources allows HR professionals to engage in the strategic management of an organization’s human capital. 

    • Pre-Law - Designed to expose students to opportunities that combine law and business, and could include careers in corporate law, international affairs, public policy, and conflict resolution, to name a few.  Many students in this track will pursue a law or other advanced degree. 

    The BBA MGMT degree program allows the student to select from a variety of jobs, organizations and industries within the student's specialization or more broadly in management.  It also provides a solid foundation for pursuing graduate studies in business, law, and a variety of other disciplines.
