Earn your degree 100% online

Business managers are found in every sector of the economy in nearly all work settings from manufacturing to health care. The Business Management program provides graduates with the knowledge and skills for positions such as an entry-level manager, office manager, shift coordinator, or team leader, or graduates may start their own business. The successful business manager oversees day-to-day activities and leads the team or organization to the next level of performance. Managers plan, organize, staff, and control the tasks that carry out the work of the business or nonprofit organization. If you set goals for yourself and strive to accomplish them, prefer working with others rather than alone, enjoy serving as a leader even if it means more work, and want to improve your skills and promotion potential, then a career in business management may be a good choice for you.
