This is the largest career opportunity sector in the nation. New jobs continue to open in management, marketing, personal selling, accounting, and financial management services. Salaries are expected to remain above average in all positions. This is a golden age for new venture formation: more small businesses are being created now than any other time in history. Students who can master management judgment, initiative, critical reasoning skills and communications ability will be in demand throughout their working lives. This program teaches the student to work in management in virtually ANY organization, whether in the private, public, or service sectors.

Students electing a financial management focus prepare for a career in banking, loan services, and investment services. Students electing an accounting focus learn to manage the books of any organization, and begin studies that can eventually lead to a career as a Certified Public Accountant. The Small Business Management focus gives students the unique skills critical to entrepreneurial success.
