Bachelor of Arts inBusiness Management

Program Overview

A Business Management major involves studying the activities associated with running a company, such as planning, organizing, directing, monitoring and controlling. You’ll learn to think about the big picture of a business’s operations and how it interacts with larger market forces. What’s the optimal balance between worker specialization and cross-training? What are the environmental considerations of expansion? How do global markets impact sales? You’ll gain knowledge and skills that are important for any business or organization as you take 44 credit hours toward a Bachelor of Arts degree.

You’ll also have real opportunities to learn beyond the classroom through internships, delving into case studies and developing solutions to situations you may face in the business world, and applying your skills via the Business Club. Because we design our business management program to be responsive to the exact needs of the marketplace, it will be a relevant major if you’re considering a career as a business executive, project manager, salesperson, account manager or other business specialist.

A business management major at Concordia St. Paul will develop business skills in leadership, team-building, and project management. They will explore core business principles in marketing, finance, management, law, economics and accounting with an emphasis on international perspectives and ethics.
