The Bachelor of Science in Management places a special emphasis on the
knowledge and skills essential for the management of human resources in private
and public organizations.
Providing a comprehensive, practical background in
the social and management sciences, the program provides course work in the
following areas: oral and written communications; leadership, human resources
management, organizational behavior and business ethics; management information
systems, statistics, and marketing; and financial planning and control.
The core curriculum of the program is structured
sequentially, with students taking one course at a time. Courses involve
four-hour class sessions once a week, usually for five weeks. Participants also
form study groups made up of three to five students who meet outside of class
for four hours on a weekly basis to work on assigned individual and group
projects. At the end of the program, students complete a capstone course that
integrates material from the previous course work through a focus on strategic
organizational leadership and includes the completion of a major paper
addressing an issue, problem, or concern in the student’s work environment.
Students obtain a
Bachelor of Science in Management degree by using the management core to build
upon other traditional and non-traditional learning experiences. A total of 128
undergraduate credits is required for the B.S.M. degree.
