The University offers a bachelor of science (B.S.) in management.
The Management Program provides the foundation needed to succeed in management careers. Coursework
in the major includes a comprehensive base of liberal studies and business courses—plus courses
that provide fundamental skills in the following areas:
Corporate social responsibility
Additional opportunities are available to study small business management and international business
management. Because management is a part of many career paths, the management major combines well
with (and compliments) other majors and minors offered by the University.
One of the strengths of the Management Program is that it provides each student with actual
management experience. In addition to realistic projects associated with coursework,
students gain practical experience by completing a cooperative practicum and an internship.
Recently, students have had the opportunity to take a summer session course that includes
a trip to Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovak Republic) to attend sessions on business
and economic development with Comenius University students. Other courses include travel to
Taiwan and mainland China. Future opportunities to partner with international schools are being planned.
Other innovations include a topics course in corporate governance and incorporating SAP software into the human
resource management course. In addition, through programs such as Sycamore Business Advisors,
students are involved with community organizations such as United Way and the Mental Health Association.
Students may join and take leadership positions in the professional business fraternities,
Delta Sigma Pi and Alpha Kappa Psi. Students interested is human resource management may join the
student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management, a professional association.
In addition, management students may be invited to join Beta Gamma Sigma, a business honorary.
Our graduates are qualified for careers in manufacturing, retail, government, technology,
international business, and not-for-profit services. Many are placed in management trainee programs.
Others begin their careers in non-managerial professional positions and then are promoted to management.
Regardless of the industry, experienced executives often state that the most important skill is the
ability to effectively manage people and resources. Consequently, skilled managers are in high demand—and
management professionals with the right experience and credentials are some of the highest paid people
in the world.
Examples of management positions include:
Administrative services manager
Chief executive office (CEO) and chief operating officer (COO)
Students have many sources of financial support for their studies, including financial aid, work-study programs, veterans' benefits, and special scholarships for entering freshmen and transfer students.
In addition, the Scott College of Business offers a variety of scholarships and awards, including scholarships for
entering freshmen. Scholarships also are available for management majors who are juniors and seniors.
