Bachelor of Arts in Management

This is a dynamic major for driven and engaged students who seek to combine multiple areas of intellectual interest in their collegiate education and career plans.

This program provides students with an understanding of the complex environment in which organizations function as well as the challenges that decision-makers face in for-profit and non-profit organizations. The program is designed for students who are pursuing two majors, and thus requires a second major of the student's choosing, outside of Business, Management, and Accounting.

The Bachelor of Arts can serve as a complementary degree for students who plan to pursue a career in a second major or who are developing a depth necessary for pursuing a particular interest. Common second majors include: art, biology, creative writing, economics, modern languages, political science, public policy, and psychology.

Depending on the second major, students completing  the Bachelor of Arts in Management pursue graduate study and careers in art, journalism, law, public policy, medicine and health care, human resources, marketing, film, and education, among others.
