Management Curriculum

The management major is designed for students interested in developing an understanding of the nature and capabilities of human and physical resources. The study and understanding of management principles and practices will aid those who intend to enter the field professionally as administrators, executives, operations managers, human resource managers, management consultants, proprietor managers, purchasing managers or other management positions. Students graduating with a management major are employed by a variety of organizations in industries, such as manufacturing, public utilities, oil and transportation, merchandising and banking, as well as government and nonprofit entities. A sound background in accepted management principles can accelerate progress to positions of greater responsibility.

Management Major

Students seeking a major in management must qualify for a Bachelor of Business Administration. The major in management requires 30 hours with at least 12 hours of advanced coursework in the major completed at SFA. GPA requirements include a minimum 2.0 overall within the business foundation and within the major.  Students are encouraged to complete an internship in management (MGMT 4176 ) and it may count as part of the 12 advanced elective hours. MGMT 3195  will not count toward a major in management.
