A degree in business management is designed to provide graduates with the skills necessary to compete in the diverse and ever-changing field of business. As a business student, you’ll deepen your critical-thinking and decision-making skills so you can immediately apply your new knowledge from the classroom to your work life.  

Business students are introduced to a variety of business topics including accounting, finance, management, organizational behavior, communication, research, business law, business ethics and project management. Once students understand these basic business principles, they can choose from one of several concentration areas to develop more specialized knowledge that aligns with their career goals.

These concentrations include:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Human Resources
  • Marketing
  • Technology Management

Business students will also develop several key abilities that are in high demand by employers. Business programs are designed to not only prepare students for their initial positions, but also to lay the groundwork for their continued career growth, development, and salary potential.  As a business student, you will:

Understand the structure and interdependencies of business

Students will cultivate a basic understanding of how businesses operate. This allows graduates to appreciate the roles and responsibilities of their colleagues. Additionally, graduates must understand how global and technical trends affect a business and how to capitalize on them. This appreciation for how different aspects of a business interact with each other allows students to see the big picture.

Develop specialized knowledge

 In addition to understanding basic business principles, new hires should also be able to complete the specific tasks that are required in their role. Students will also become familiar with various computer programs and systems and learn how businesses can leverage technology to gain a competitive edge. At Herzing, students have the opportunity to pursue a variety of degree concentrations to develop specific skills that are central to their career goals.
