A management degree is about more than just people and processes. Management brings together people and the process of attaining organizational goals in the dynamic marketplace that we see in business today.

Concordia-Chicago Management Degree Overview

CUC offers two management degrees: A bachelor of arts in management and a bachelor of science in business administration with emphasis on management. Both management degrees will prepare you for an exciting career in a dynamic field. Graduates with management degrees find positions as production supervisors, account executives, human resources administrators and more.

Our rigorous but flexible degree programs build your critical knowledge of business and management issues. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing students with a well-rounded learning experience by using the latest technology and engaging students with real-world business scenarios and hands-on learning exercises.

Management Course Information

The bachelor of arts in management degree is for students who want a broad liberal arts foundation with an emphasis in business. The bachelor of science degree requires a more intensive business core. If you have questions, a counselor with our Office of Admission can help as you decide.

The bachelor of arts degree in management requires 48 semester hours of study. The bachelor of science degree in business administration with an emphasis in management requires 54 semester hours of study.

Students in both degree tracks take required courses in accounting, economics, statistics, management, ethics, finance, marketing, organizational behavior and business law. Students working toward a bachelor of science degree will be able to select electives from courses such as personal finance, small business management, sports management, corporate finance and advanced business law.
