Management Major (MGT)

The BUA department strives to prepare students to take their places in society and to thrive in whatever roles they choose. The successful student who completes the program will:

  • Be able to analyze problems;
  • Be able to communicate ideas effectively in writing;
  • Demonstrate broad knowledge of the functional areas of business:  accounting, economics, finance, management, and marketing; and
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the basic content of management.

The department is committed to providing a broadly oriented professional education to prepare students for careers in business, government, and not-for-profit organizations. The Management major contains several required core courses that provide students with a good foundation in the functional areas of business. In addition, the management courses offer sound preparation for students who seek careers in management of people or processes.

All majors require a senior comprehensive experience.  In their last semester Management majors take a standardized test of general business knowledge (the Comprehensive Business Exam) and a written exam focused on their major content.  The Department contacts students with details of the comprehensive experience in the fall, with testing dates finalized in the student’s last semester.  The Department Chair reports exam results to the student and the Office of the Registrar.
