B.A. in Business Management
Preparation for a business career requires a deep appreciation for, and a sound understanding of, the marketplace. Thus the business management major program is designed for those who seek a broad spectrum of business courses or wish to combine several fields. This program develops competence in conceptual, human, and technical skills, and these skills—developed through a well-chosen sequence of electives—make those completing the program well prepared for employment in public- and private-sector organizations.
Coursework in general business management includes a fundamental system of values that serves as the basis for decision making. Students are prepared upon graduation for first-line management positions such as supervisor and team or shift leader. This degree also prepares and equips students for staff specialist or general administration positions. Students may enter into a wide range of industries, including retail and sales, commercial banking, real estate, savings and loan associations, entertainment, and more. Some graduates begin new ventures, operate small businesses, develop new products, or return to the family business.
The Bachelor of Arts in Business Management comprises 61 units. Students must achieve an average GPA of 2.5 or higher in their major courses (including the Business Core).
