The Business Administration, Leadership and Management program focuses on helping students identify and develop their leadership potential in management and leadership practices through industry and competitive analysis and by helping students to become confident in decision-making; resilient and adaptable when change is required, and along with the ability to develop their personal and social responsibilities to stakeholders.
Students will enhance their ability to manage projects, find efficiencies, identify the best hires, and leverage their financial knowledge into smart, innovative, and strategic business decisions. Through experiential learning and practical assignments that will simulate real business situations, they will focus on their growth as leaders and decision-makers. Experienced and knowledgeable professors will help students fine-tune their business expertise and new essential skills.
Additional benefits will include program opportunities for experiential learning through clubs and competitions, articulation agreements with various universities, and flexible learning options such as traditional classroom settings, blended and online offerings.
