Management (B.S.)

Indiana State University

Description:

The University offers a bachelor of science (B.S.) in management.

The Management Program provides the foundation needed to succeed in management careers. Coursework in the major includes a comprehensive base of liberal studies and business courses—plus courses that provide fundamental skills in the following areas:

  • Business ethics
  • Corporate social responsibility
  • Leadership
  • Organizational design
  • People management
  • Strategic management

Additional opportunities are available to study small business management and international business management. Because management is a part of many career paths, the management major combines well with (and compliments) other majors and minors offered by the University.

One of the strengths of the Management Program is that it provides each student with actual management experience. In addition to realistic projects associated with coursework, students gain practical experience by completing a cooperative practicum and an internship.

Recently, students have had the opportunity to take a summer session course that includes a trip to Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovak Republic) to attend sessions on business and economic development with Comenius University students. Other courses include travel to Taiwan and mainland China. Future opportunities to partner with international schools are being planned.

Other innovations include a topics course in corporate governance and incorporating SAP software into the human resource management course. In addition, through programs such as Sycamore Business Advisors, students are involved with community organizations such as United Way and the Mental Health Association.

Students may join and take leadership positions in the professional business fraternities, Delta Sigma Pi and Alpha Kappa Psi. Students interested is human resource management may join the student chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management, a professional association. In addition, management students may be invited to join Beta Gamma Sigma, a business honorary.
