Graduates from the Business Management degree programs not only understand the functions and issues facing businesses in the modern world economy but have learned and practiced the skills to creatively solve modern problems. Through classroom experiences, internships, guest speakers, lecturers, and student associations, the Business Management Department connects the classroom to the business world.

Classes cross disciplines and incorporate imagination, expression, and the interrelationships of global and multi-cultural forces on the business environment.
