As a result of action taken by the School of Business and Economics faculty, new and updated academic programs will make it possible for students to pursue multiple areas of study within SOBE, giving them the opportunity to enter the job market with an even broader range of skills and knowledge.
This year, Human Resource Management joins the list of majors available to SOBE students. Upon completion of this program, students will have the knowledge required to sit for the Professional in Human Resources certification (PHR) offered through the Society for Human Resource Management.
A newly-revised Management major will place increased emphasis on real-world job skills, with courses in project management, negotiation, and conflict and change management.
The faculty also approved several new business minors. In addition to Business, Economics, and Leadership Studies, students can now choose to minor in Accounting and Human Resource Management.
