Business Administration

The Department of Management and Business Administration offers an interdisciplinary major program in business administration (HEGIS 0506) leading to a BBA degree. The program in business administration is supported by the faculty of the Hagan School of Business.

Objectives

The program in business administration is designed as an integrative rather than a concentrated course of study. It is an interdisciplinary program with advanced courses in several functional areas that allows students to deal with managerial and decision-making concerns from a broad perspective. The major prepares students for non-specialist positions in business, introduces them to the international aspects of business and assists those interested in preparing for graduate business education. The diversified approach provides graduates with flexibility to seek advancement in a variety of areas.

Objectives

The Department of Management offers a major in management that is concerned with the achievement of the goals of an organization, either a business or a not-for-profit entity, and the goals of the people within the organization. Management includes the functions of planning, organization, motivation and control which are directed toward solving problems involving finance, human relations and production.

The program in management is designed to prepare students for careers in the management of public and private sector organizations. To that end it presents students with a systematic body of knowledge to enable them to acquire an understanding of how formal organizations are structured and to appreciate the significance of informal structures within organizations. The program maintains a balance of theory and experiential learning to develop the thinking, traits, knowledge and skills essential to career success and leadership in any business. Special emphasis is given to interpersonal and decision making skills.

Internships

The department conducts a credit-bearing internship program in a select group of organizations, where students are expected to take part in projects and organizational decision-making situations. Senior standing is needed to apply.
