The goal of the B.B.A. with a management concentration is to develop the critical, conceptual, and interpersonal skills that are essential to employment in management positions in all types of organizations. In addition to requiring a theoretical foundation, the curriculum provides students with numerous opportunities to integrate and apply these skills in a variety of situations. Specific degree objectives are to enable students to develop: 1) an understanding of the different forms of organizations and how they operate in domestic and global contexts; 2) an ability to analyze cognitive, behavioral, and ethical issues faced by individuals and groups in organizations; and 3) an understanding of appropriate strategies for organizational effectiveness and the practical application of management concepts to address the challenges faced by leaders and members of the organizations.
