The Business and Management program provides integrated knowledge of the functional areas of business and introduces the student to the complexities of today’s diverse organizational environment. The intent is to prepare the student for a high level of performance in business or nonprofit organizations. Christian ethics are integrated throughout the program to give the student a basis for understanding and addressing contemporary social, moral and ethical issues facing the management professional. The Business and Management program also provides a firm foundation for the student who desires to pursue academic training beyond the bachelor’s degree.
Students may select one of four concentrations offered in Hope International University’s undergraduate Business and Management program:
General Management: The Management concentration provides students with the opportunity to select five courses (fifteen units) in various aspects of the field of management. This permits some degree of specialization within the overall field of management to support specific student career interests.
All Business and Management students are required to complete a paid internship in their junior or senior year. Business internships are a great way to test-drive your career, contribute to an organization, and discover valuable lessons that will help prepare you for your career after college. With the assistance of your Internship Advisor, you will find an organization that meets your needs, and complete 140 hours there. Many students receive job offers at the end of their internship, and/or create lasting relationships that may help them in landing their first career job out of college.
