Introduction
The mission of the Business Management Department is to create a learning environment for students to acquire the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to make an immediate contribution in the workplace, and to rapidly grow into leadership positions in their organizations. We will do this by partnering with industry and non-profit organizations to provide mentoring, seminars, consulting projects, and internships to allow the student to apply what they have learned via case study and classroom discussion. Graduating students will emerge with an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit, technological and global literacy, and key communication and problem-solving skills.
