Concentration Overview

The Management concentration is a second year option of the Business Administration diploma program.

In this concentration, you develop the skills you need to make strategic decisions that lead to an organization's growth and success. You're prepared to start at entry level, but employers will recognize your management potential.

You learn how real-life managers keep their companies moving forward by researching and setting objectives, evaluating strategies to meet those goals and then breaking down those strategies into functional projects. Teamwork is essential, so is the ability to delegate and motivate. Along the way, you get lots of input and practical advice from industry advisors. By graduation, you are well-prepared to start your career and know what employers will expect of you in management positions.
