Program description

The activity of management is concerned with setting an organization’s strategic goals and formulating processes to achieve them. Managers carry out their administrative roles by handling such duties as preparing and administering budgets, planning and directing operations, and coordinating employees’ activities.


The management/business administration concentration provides students with a broad-based study of management and other business disciplines. The course options in the curriculum give students flexibility in developing a program of study that can lead to a variety of entry-level positions in private and public organizations.


The management/international management concentration allows students to pursue an interest in the global nature of today's business world. A variety of opportunities for international study within and outside the university are available. Students in the management/international management concentration are encouraged to enrich their learning experience by pursuing a minor in international studies or foreign language, studying abroad or taking approved courses outside the School of Business.
Career opportunities

The management/business administration concentration crosses all areas of business and as such prepares you to have many choices for a career path upon graduating.  Important skills such as communication, leadership, decision making, data analysis, and strategic thinking are developed in this concentration and are critical for all types of business careers.  Typical managers address a wide variety of problems: financial, operational, human, legal, and political, on a routine basis.  Private, public and government agencies all require employees with strong management skills. Typical titles upon graduating include account manager, business analyst, management trainee, sales representative, and recruiter. Because the business administration degree provides a broad business background, it’s important for students to pursue internship and externship experience to gain depth and specialization in their future fields of work. 


The management/international management concentration provides a firm grounding on all aspects of business coupled with concentrated study on international topics including international management, international marketing, and international financial management.  This concentrating extends your knowledge of business to the global arena.  Students often combine this degree with study abroad opportunities or participation in the International Consulting Program.  You will be prepared to take entry level positions such as account managers, business analyst or management trainees in international divisions of U.S. companies, and for careers in government agencies involved with international trade, and in nonprofit organizations.
