What should I expect to learn in my major courses and why?
Over the last five years, the MBC faculty significantly revised the management major, reviewing all outcomes,assessment measures, and courses. This was not done in a vacuum; rather, all decisions made in this process included theBusiness Advisory Board (BAB) for the management major. Our BAB consists of approximately twenty business peoplewho regularly interact with Management students each semester. They are business people who typically recruit UCMmanagement major graduates and/or are UCM graduates from our major. A list of the BAB members may be found on thedepartmental web site (http://www.ucmo.edu/management/) The BSBA in Management major outcomes were finalized in May, 2008, and are shown below. Each of themanagement major outcomes correlates directly with one or more of the BSBA outcomes: thinking, communicating, valuingand interacting.
