About the Program
The Business Management program provides the skills and knowledge managers need to guide organizations in reaching goals by working with people and other organizational resources. The program assists students in identifying career goals and assists people who are already in the workforce by providing additional training for career advancement. The program also helps students identify areas of special interest in management and create an educational plan to develop specialized knowledge in those management areas. Business Management students can earn certificates to achieve recognition for a series of related courses before they earn the Business Management degree.
Management activities occur in business, manufacturing, government, not-for-profit, and tribal sectors of our economy. Business managers implement the plans of an organization by coordinating basic operations. They work in finance, staffing, planning, quality, marketing, and information management. They analyze external and internal conditions and problems; lead, motivate, and coach employees; and serve as representatives of their organization.
