        The Department of Management, Marketing, and Administrative Systems offers eleven undergraduate degrees. The Department offers a BBA in Management, a BBA in Human Resources Management, a BS in Management, a BBA in Marketing, a BBA in Interdisciplinary Business, a BS in Business Administration and a BBA in Administrative Systems. The Bachelor of Science degree in Administrative Systems leads to teacher certification with three options: Business Secretarial, Business Administration, and Business Composite.  The department also supports a minor in International Studies.

        The BS in Applied Science, with a business emphasis, is offered through the College of Liberal and Fine Arts. The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree in Business Occupations is available through the Department of Management, Marketing, and Administrative Systems. The B.S.A.S. requires a block of approved occupational specialization credit for technical training and the B.A.A.S. requires a block of approved occupational specialization credit for technical training and/or work experience.  The credit block is subject to approval by the B.A.A.S. Committee. Up to 36 credit hours of occupational specialization may be granted by the BAAS Committee subject to special guidelines.

        These degree programs have a dual emphasis: a broad-based education in the foundation disciplines of the liberal arts and the sciences and a focused development of business knowledge. Each major has a set of required courses and electives that students may choose to enrich their degrees. Moreover, the general business courses are designed to support the various business curricula. All departmental programs are designed to prepare students professionally and for entrance into graduate school.

        At the graduate level, the department offers a MS in Management and Leadership and a MS in Human Resources Management. The departments of the College of Business Administration in cooperation offer the MBA degree. Those interested in graduate programs should consult the graduate section of this catalog.
