Introduction

Welcome to the Management Department at Tarleton State University! The Department offers a variety of Bachelor’s and Master’s program options. Our robust curriculum allows the learner to specialize in International Business, Human Resource Management, or broad-based Management through our bachelor of business administration (BBA) degrees. We also offer opportunities for degree completion for those needing to maximize prior learning while completing a bachelor’s with our applied science degrees.

At the graduate level, we expand the focus area options available to learners. Business Analytics, Management & Leadership, Small & Family Business, Logistics, and Supply Chain Management are some of the new areas we offer. See the Information Flyer on the MS Management program for more details of these new offerings. This is in addition to the traditional Master of Business Administration, and our Nationally ranked master’s degree in Human Resource Management Program.

Undergraduate Programs:

1Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) programs explore each aspect of operating a business, including the functional areas of management, human resource management, or international business, etc.

2The Bachelor of Science (BSAS) and the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Science (BAAS) programs are for students who have completed technical or occupational specializations from community colleges, technical schools, military schools, etc.

3This degree is not recommended for new first-time students. Increasingly, recruiters/employers are discouraging this degree for new employees just starting a career.

Graduate Programs:
