Management, B.B.A. - Leadership Track


C.T. Bauer College of Business  > Department of Management  > Management, B.B.A. - Leadership Track

A Leadership Track in Management reflects a defined and coherent set of courses that include knowledge and skill development for students who aspire to be leaders in today’s rapidly changing environment. This knowledge and skill will help students improve their sets of competencies for a highly competitive job market in the real world of business. Organizations in all sectors have voiced concern regarding the apparent lack of leadership skills among their employees. A background in effectively managing human resources, ethics, change, organizational behavior, as well as an entire course devoted to developing individual leadership skills will address this need.

The Leadership Track and the Leadership Minor  will also include numerous self assessments and leadership activities that can be added to students’ portfolios to enhance their job prospects.
