Management (BBA)


SVSU's Management program empowers great leaders by pushing them beyond the comfort zone of academia and into the world of business. Majors in the program quickly learn the essentials of effective leadership as they solve real-world performance and structural problems at an organizational level. With expert faculty and an AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business-International) accreditation, Management students defy expectations and persevere in concentrations such as Family Business Management. From learning to navigate the dynamics of interpersonal communication, via internships in major organizations like Quicken Loans and Nexteer, to questioning the stereotypical framework of organizational design—Management students rise to the challenge of being tomorrow's leaders.
