Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a Specialization in Management

People with a common passion or purpose need a leader to help them get things done, whether in a Fortune 500 corporate setting, a mom-and-pop enterprise, or a nonprofit organization start-up. Stakeholders, investors, and employees depend on expert managers and leaders to share power and create a culture of trust among the team. Immediate profit and long-term financial rewards are desirable outcomes, but today’s executives and managers also focus on business sustainability, talent development, global competition and corporate responsibility.

This kind of engagement takes more to develop than just a “business instinct.” AUM’s business education programs are recognized for preparing graduates to go into management ready to lead. Our BSBA with a Management specialization will help you develop the interpersonal and decision-making skills that will allow you to flourish in a variety of business environments.

We know that you want to feel confident about future job prospects.
