Management

The role of the modern manager is a complex one. Simply understanding a product or an industry is no longer enough. Today's manager oversees workers that are expected to be flexible, multi-tasking, and cross-trained. Their complex needs and the personalization of responsibility falls onto the shoulders of a manager. Managers also have to be prepared not only to understand the goals of the business, but how to best use the skills and resources of their teams, their own knowledge, and other resources to achieve business objectives. The management major gives you an understanding of data and personnel analysis, communications, and psychological insight to the work environment that you can apply across a wide variety of organizations and industries.

BVU management majors choose from tracks in entrepreneurship, human resources and sports management and have a variety of employment opportunities, including:

Unlike other management schools in Iowa, BVU offers adult learning at our Graduate & Professional Studies locations at community colleges throughout Iowa. Another benefit of our business courses is that you can choose from online, hybrid and evening classes. BVU accommodates the busy lives of students looking for degree completion programs.
