Bachelor of Business Administration in Management
Management is about setting goals and objectives and then developing strategies and organizing work activities to achieve them. Evangel’s Management major is designed to provide excellent entry-level management professionals with a Christian worldview who are prepared for careers in all sizes and types of organizations. The curriculum is designed so that students have the flexibility to apply the study of management to their primary areas of interest.
The Management major is a comprehensive major (71 credit hours) that emphasizes the kinds of knowledge that contribute to analytical capacity, judgment, breadth and flexibility of mind; the ability to accept responsibility and to make decisions; skill in interpersonal relations, communicative skills and general administrative skills; and the ability to cope with technological innovations, social problems, economic barriers, and rapidly changing political and international situations. Students are involved in case studies for problem solving, guest lectures, and onsite visits to businesses to develop leadership and bring practicality and experience into the classroom.
Students in this major will complete the business core requirements that provide a foundation in economics, management, accounting, marketing, law, finance, business communications, international business and strategic management. The major also requires courses in operations management, human resource management, human behavior in organizations, and six credits of specific electives from courses such as compensation and benefits, workforce selection and development, organizational leadership, and a management internship. Students must also take 15 credits of electives from other areas of business such as accounting, economics, finance and marketing or department-approved courses or minors in areas outside the department that contribute to the student's vocational interest such as communication, computer science, music industry, government and sports administration. Six of the elective credits must be upper division.
Under a consortium agreement with Missouri State University, qualified management majors can dual enroll for up to 9 credit hours in MSU's Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Health Administration (MHA) programs.
