Business Administration, Management Concentration, B.S./M.M.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Programs

The Management Concentration is designed to engage the student in a logistics approach to understanding the complexity of successful business leadership. This means that effective administrative capabilities are first developed through the mastery of a variety of skills learned through many disciplines in the liberal arts and business administration curriculum. Good managers must be able to communicate effectively; reason conceptually and quantitatively; understand accounting, finance, and economics; and possess good human relations and interpersonal skills. Through the six course management core, students are then given the opportunity to apply these skills to specific management areas. Consequently, when students complete these studies, they are able to assume positions in a management track.

Graduates with a Business Administration degree may take advantage of the College's Five Year Bachelor/Master Program, and complete their Master of Management with just one additional year of full time study.  Generous scholarship supports students wishing to undertake this challenge.

Program Goals:

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree, students will:

  • demonstrate an ability to conduct relevant research in their field of business and/or their concentration.
  • exhibit mastery of basic business knowledge, concepts, and terminology in the specific areas of marketing, management, accounting, and finance.
  • demonstrate knowledge and skills required to obtain employment in their field.
  • develop the skills necessary to continued success in their fields including leadership abilities and a heightened sense of social responsibility and ethics.
