Why do many students choose to major in business management? It is one of the most versatile majors, which can unlock doors to myriad professions you may not have even considered. Immaculata’s Bachelor of Science in business management provides you with working knowledge of global markets, foreign cultures and business organizations, and the analytical skills to make economic and operating decisions.
With so many career options available to business management graduates who have developed a strong foundation in the liberal arts, you will be prepared to pursue management and leadership roles locally, nationally, and globally or continue your education in an MBA or other graduate programs. Through an agreement with DeSales University, you can start your graduate studies during your senior year at IU and finish your M.B.A. at DeSales with only one additional year of study or at your own pace.
