General business managers are found in nearly all work settings in virtually every sector of the economy. Graduates of the Business Management program are equipped with the foundational skills needed to manage the operations of a business. Graduates are competent in the business functions of planning, organizing, directing, and controlling with the core skills that are vital for success in the business world.
There are many job listings that would be appropriate for a graduate of the Business Management program. Small organizations typically require generalist skills and large organizations tend toward some specialization among their managers.
With additional education and/or work experience, a graduate may find employment opportunities as a manager of operations with increased responsibility, authority and commensurate pay.
