Program Overview

Program Description

Strong business management is both an art and a science.

Management

In Centenary University’s Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Business Administration, Management concentration, you will study analytical methods to ensure top business performance while developing leadership skills. Our program prepares future managers with the expertise they will need to get the job done in the best possible way at the lowest possible cost.

The Management curriculum covers Centenary’s core Business Administration coursework during the first two years, including classes in accounting, marketing and finance. You will then advance into high-level classes in topics including organizational behavior as well as individual, team and human resources management.

Many students complete the Management concentration in conjunction with our Marketing concentration — a tract that offers a highly desirable combination of sought-after business skills.

Solving Problems

Being an effective manager involves understanding how to solve problems — in both operations and interpersonal relationships. Centenary’s Management program goes beyond teaching just the “nuts and bolts” of how to run a business and focuses on how to develop an effective team.

Our Management graduates have gone on to work in wide variety of settings —from small businesses to large corporations. You will find Centenary graduates at such big name companies as TD Bank and ADP as well as New Jersey’s top pharmaceutical companies.

Learn from Professionals

All of Centenary’s Business Administration professors have extensive management-level experience working in corporate or small-business settings. As a result, our Management classes include exercises aimed at developing leadership skills in addition to teaching the science of management — how to have the right people in the right positions.
