Beyond the core Business Administration courses, the Management option will focus on the importance of synergy in and the functions of management in the business world. The dynamics of organizational behavior and the importance of effective human resource management will also be explored. The cores of any organization, managers often are called upon to provide stability and focus to accomplish operational initiatives. According to the CT Department of Labor, job growth in Management Analysts and First Line Supervisors/Managers (in all sectors) is expected to grow about as fast as average. Although some of the jobs in this field may require a bachelor’s degree or higher, the Management option will prepare students to go on to either entry level jobs in the field and/or transfer to the CSU’s through the TAP articulation.
In addition to General Education Outcomes, learners who complete the Business Administration: Management degree will:
- Demonstrate an understanding of the importance of financial statements and financial analysis to interpret operating results (students will be assessed via case study, written papers and/or presentations);
- Demonstrate the ability to apply the various principles of problem solving to business situations so as to become an intelligent decision maker (students will be assessed through individual and group case studies and papers);
- Understand the impact the U.S. legal system has on making business decisions (students will be assessed through case study analysis and tests).
While students entering the program are not required to have successfully completed the Basic Skills Assessment requirement to enroll in Program Core courses without prerequisites, practice has shown that for success students should first complete the BSA courses or be taking them concurrently with Program Core courses. Students are also recommended to have basic keyboarding skills.
