Bachelor of Science in Business Administration
Management

The management major (BABA-MGT) is for goal-oriented leaders. Management majors learn how to utilize human and financial resources to accomplish organizational goals. The management curriculum combines theory with application, focusing largely on problem solving, case studies, and small group projects. Upon completion of the major, students will be ready to serve in management positions in Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, or set off on their own entrepreneurial venture. Students interested in management should possess strong quantitative skills, enjoy problem solving, and have a genuine passion for leadership and working with people. Management graduates often pursue graduate degrees in business, law, real estate, and entrepreneurship.

Management Curriculum

Students pursuing a BSBA-MGT must complete a minimum of 120 credit hours. For information about the coursework required please visit UF's Management Major page or schedule an appointment with one of our management major Academic Advisors and Career Coaches.
