- Business Sense – by learning the cross functional environment in which businesses operate.
- Critical Skills - in the important business functions of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling, but in other areas as well, such as: interpersonal communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and change management.
- Emphasizing contemporary business issues - through core and elective courses that promote a solid foundation in both theory and practice of effective and efficient management principles, organizational change and development practices, and the theory and practice of effectively addressing social, ethical, and moral issues when evaluating and formulating business decisions, and business strategy and policy.
