Business management gives particular emphasis to an understanding of the behavioral and systemic challenges that people face in organizations—profit and nonprofit—by providing students with a thorough knowledge of management concepts and applications. The business management major encompasses a course of study leading to a Bachelor of Science degree. This four-year program relates the analytical, the behavioral, and the conceptual theories of business and develops a perceptive and orderly approach to management situations. Students can opt for a double major by combining business management with another discipline by consulting with their advisors.
