Graduates holding the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Manage-
ment may find employment opportunities in both the public and private
sectors. Opportunities arc expected to be especially plentiful in the services

transportation), where these degrees will be valuable.

The department offers three separate degree programs: Management.
Human Resource Management, and International Business.

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Management oilers three
tracks in which students can choose to concentrate: Genera] Management.
Operations Management, and Entrepreneurship and Small Business
Management.

• General Management Track. While both management theory and
application are taught in all of the department's majors, the track is
distinguished by its emphasis upon the achievement "I organized goals
through the efforts of organization members.

• Operations Management Track. Students in this track are well
grounded in both theory and application, focusing on production,
operations, qualm issues, and inventory and capacity management.



• Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management I rack.

Students taking this track will focus on creation and operation "1 a
small business This track is also lor graduates who will be working in
small businesses where the manager often must perform several
managerial roles and manage several functions

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Human Resource
Management prepares individuals in both the theoretical and applied
aspects of managing the human resources function m organizations as a

generalist or specialist. Students will gam expertise in areas such as job
design, staffing, training, compensation, and performance appraisal.

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in International Business

Minor in Entrepreneurship for Fine Arts Students

The minor in Entrepreneurship for nonbusiness majors program assumes
no prior knowledge of business. Fine arts students are often involved in
starting and running their own business, developing and starting small per-
forming groups, and developing and running nonprofit community
theaters. Students would develop the skills necessary to evaluate opportuni-
ties within their industry. They would learn, among other things, to
(1) analyze their competition. (2l develop marketing and financial plans.
(3) explain intellectual property rights. (4) negotiate contracts, and
(5) write a business plan that could be used to obtain financing from banks,
investors, or other sources of funding. These skills are all central to the
creation and development of new ventures This is a joint effort of four
departments and represents an IS-credit minor for fine arts majors. The
program is designed to give nonbusiness majors a general background in
starting and running a small business.
