Students will finish their concentration with the negotiation and conflict resolution skills necessary to become excellent leaders.

Managerial Studies Waitlists

Students may take Managerial Communication (BA 200), Introduction to Marketing (MKTG 360), Introduction to Organizations (MGMT 340), and Introduction to Entrepreneurship (ENTR 310) without having been admitted to the College of Business Administration. However, since we give registration priority to CBA students first, you must put your name on a waitlist for these courses. We review the waitlist one week prior to the beginning of each term and based on remaining availability in the classes, we will notify you by email if you can register for the course. Register right away because space will not be held for you. Please be advised that putting your name on a waitlist does not guarantee that you will be able to register, and we cannot provide permission to register for specific class sections.
