A program of study in the Department of Management leads to a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (B.S.B.A.) degree with a Major in Management, a B.S.B.A. degree with a Major in International Business, or a Minor in International Management.
The Major in Management is designed to teach students to plan, organize, lead, and control business activities in both the public and private sectors. Students develop skills in decision making, leadership, motivation, problem solving, and teamwork.
Students pursuing the Management major must select one of two concentrations: Talent Management or Organizational Management. The former concentration is designed for students interested in “the management of human resources or talent,” and the latter concentration is designed for students interested in “general or strategic management.”
Courses in this major include the following topics: management and organizational behavior, managerial ethics, decision-making techniques, managing human resources and developing communication skills that make for effective leadership. The objectives of the major are to provide each student with conceptual tools and develop managerial skills that support leadership in a variety of organizations.
Global citizenship is a core value of the Belk College of Business. Because business success requires a global perspective, the Department of Management also offers the B.S.B.A. degree with a Major in International Business and the Minor in International Management.
