Students completing a concentration in the Department of Management will develop a systems thinking perspective as they view organizations; will develop a competitive perspective as they work with organizations; will become problem-solvers; will value diversity in all its forms; and will study managerial skills.

Overview

There is an increasingly widespread desire within the business community for people who can communicate well, both in face-to-face and in electronically-mediated forms of communication. The concentration in business communication is designed to provide students a basic understanding of business fundamentals, plus background knowledge and skills in human message exchange. This exchange can occur in many forms: one-on-one, in groups, across cultures, and electronically.

In addition to the general business courses required of all business majors, students who elect to do concentrated study in business communication take four additional communication courses, selected with the guidance of their adviser. These courses can focus on working with people or with electronic media. Those communication courses that emphasize working with people, such as Organizational Communication or Small Group Communication, provide the foundation for effective interaction and discussion. Those courses that focus on electronic media, such as Electronic Media Production or writing and design for the web, provide the basics for working with technology in the workplace and can help prepare students for business-related careers in the electronic media and broadcasting industry.
