The B.B.A. degree in Management has two distinct tracks: traditional management and management with a specialization in human resource (HR) management.

Traditional track: The traditional management degree prepares graduates for a wide range of managerial positions in business, government, and non-profit organizations. It also provides a solid foundation for students interested in pursuing graduate studies in business, law, and a variety of other disciplines. Courses for the management program are designed to enhance students’ knowledge and skills pertaining to entrepreneuriship, managerial communication, leadership, international management, strategic management, and ethical conduct.

Human Resource Management track: The management degree with a specialization in human resource (HR) management prepares graduates who can contribute to the missions of organizations, both operationally and strategically. Human resources professionals are expected to deal with the complexities and challenges of managing today’s workforce. The program’s content provides a comprehensive coverage of the major human resource responsibilities, including recruitment, selection, training and development, compensation, benefits, performance appraisal, employee relations, health and safety, and strategic HR planning.

This track is fully aligned with the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) curriculum guidelines (established in 2005). Students completing this SHRM-approved program are eligible to take the SHRM-CP exam (which normally requires three years of experience) during their final year of study.
