BML Core Coursework

The BA in management and leadership is structured as an interdisciplinary, liberal arts, social science-based curriculum. Thirty-six (36) semester hours are earned by completing the modular coursework in the major. The courses take place one night each week or asynchronously online. Courses are sequential so that only one is taken at a time. The knowledge and experience builds from the beginning to two finishing courses—one in how to manage a profit or nonprofit organization and the other in personal and social ethics. Students will be part of a cohort who will attend all the courses together, forming an adult support group. An emphasis upon effective interpersonal communication permeates the approach.
