Management and Leadership, B.B.A.

The B.B.A. in Management and Leadership develops students' skills in leading others, leading strategically, and leading change while also increasing self-awareness to be stronger organizational members and leaders whenever those opportunities occur. The best leaders allocate resources to match the organization's mission and values, empower their employees, develop skills in others, and inspire a shared vision. They make things happen by asking questions, encouraging critical thinking, and motivating the team to discover solutions. The best managers are leaders who manage resources and challenge others to achieve and grow.
Graduates who are competent in relationship building, soft skills, and leadership are in high demand. The workforce is rapidly changing with technological advances and artificial intelligence augmenting workers' tasks. Today, managers and workers must rely on their soft and leadership skills to engage others regardless of their position. We all find ourselves as leaders at different times in our lives, and this program is designed to address the call of employers for graduates who can make things happen in this new environment. Students interested in careers in management and leadership will complete core classes in leadership skills, human resources management, organization behavior, managing key performance indicators, and ethical leadership as a foundation for the major. Students may choose from a list of electives to gain skills in leading change/innovation, leading organizations/teams, global mindset, and decision-making/problem-solving.
