Program Opportunities
  • Major in Business Management
  • Minor in Business

As a management major, you’ll engage in project-based learning that applies to a wide variety of entry-level jobs. You’ll identify a business startup idea and complete a full-scale business plan which banks or venture capitalists would require when considering funding the endeavor. These learning experiences prepare you to become a management trainee, a human resources information system administrator, a merchandising manager, a pricing analyst, and more.
