Management & Administration

Possible Areas of Emphasis

* Emphasis in Entrepreneurship/Small Business Management – This emphasis is designed for persons whose career aspirations include starting, managing, and developing their own businesses. The distinguishing characteristic of the emphasis is that it focuses on teaching students how to assume total responsibility for a business enterprise. This emphasis is especially appealing to self-motivated individuals who prefer to be their own bosses and who are unafraid of expressing and taking action on their ideas.

* Emphasis in Human Resource Management – The human resource management emphasis allows a student to specialize in the study of personnel administration and human resource management. While this emphasis is especially appealing to individuals whose career aspirations are focused on working in the human resources management areas, the collection of courses included in this emphasis are relevant to managers in all areas of today’s organizations.

* Emphasis in Operations Management – The operations management emphasis allows the student to prepare for positions in manufacturing and other organizations with operations departments and for management careers in manufacturing and service organizations. While much of the course work focuses on manufacturing management, the approaches that are covered and the skills that are developed are generalizable to service operations and supply chain management.

* Emphasis in Hospitality Management – This Hospitality Program is designed to prepare students for careers in Restaurant or Hotel Management. Upon the competition of course work a semester long paid internship is required. This is intended to give students hands-on experience to complement their studies and to serve as a bridge to help start their careers.
