All students take a 21-credit core that includes courses in leadership & ethics, marketing, management theory, economics, and accounting. Students in the general track complete their coursework with a flexible set of electives, while the other concentrations in Accounting, Health Administration, Public Management and Sport Management have more specific requirements.

Through these experiences, students heighten their cultural awareness, develop a global perspective, and learn to communicate effectively with individuals from diverse cultural, academic and professional backgrounds.
