Program Description

This program is designed for recent high school graduates and teaches the skills necessary to be competitive in both public and private sector management positions.

Students will learn to apply organizational and management theories, and quantitative techniques to interpret and analyze business situations. Problem-solving skills will allow the student to take the initiative in identifying and pursuing organizational opportunities for growth and improvement.

Beyond theoretical and quantitative elements, practical leadership abilities for motivating, persuading, and enabling others to achieve individual, group, and institutional goals will be developed. The student will acquire the skills and tools necessary to manage in the 21st Century.

We require students to complete an internship in their area of interest. This provides the students with the opportunity to interact with professionals in the work environment. Many of our students have received offers for full-time employment in the firm in which they interned.
