Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in Business Management

Business Management prepares students to manage organizations of all types.  Managers help businesses improve the way they get products and services to their customers.  They keep businesses running smoothly by bringing together suppliers, employers, workers and the tools they use to create the products and services sold everywhere.  Business management students have opportunities to participate in experiential learning such as working with ATU’s Small Business Technology and Development Center to help local businesses to manage more efficiently.
