Business Administration Major: Leadership & Management Concentration

The study of management is designed to provide a head start to students who aspire to lead enterprises, both big and small, rather than work in functional areas of business, such as finance, marketing or operations.

The leadership and management curriculum helps individuals make the transition from specialist to generalist; from analyst to integrator; from tactician to strategist; and from a team/organizational member to a leader. Management education at Towson University is more than learning business formulas, theories and principles. It subscribes to the vision that successful enterprise leadership is achieved when the leader is seen as being authentic, with passion for self-discovery and growth.

Students in the leadership and management concentration complete the major in Business Administration and 24 units of Management requirements.

These requirements are for catalog year 2015-2016. If your catalog year is different, please refer to the specific requirements in your specific catalog.
