The Business Management Major is designed to prepare students for a leadership role in today’s highly competitive, global business environment. Students will first complete the Core Program, which consists of a selection of courses that focus on cross-functional business competencies. The core courses will provide students with the range of general business knowledge common to all business career paths. Following the core business courses, students will specialize in the Management discipline by taking six electives, two of which must be at the 400 level, and one of which must be the Capstone Course: BUS501: Strategic Management. These electives are designed to give students the depth of discipline-specific knowledge required to succeed as a leader in a complex, modern organization. The program will conclude with a Capstone Course (BUS501: Strategic Management), in which students will implement and apply the sum of information learned throughout the major in a strategic development project.
Note that there is a stand-alone “Introduction to Business” course (BUS101) included in a separate “Foundational Business” section below. This course is intended for students interested in learning about the field or considering a major in Business Management. However, please note that this course does not count towards the Business Major.
To fulfill the requirements of this major, you must complete the core program (12 courses), as well as BUS501 and 5 electives of your choice (6 courses) for a total of 18 courses.
