Management (BBA)

A flexible future.

The most flexible of ACU’s business-related majors, a management degree prepares a graduate to enter a range of organizations, from startups to Fortune 500 companies, and gives them the tools to hone their skills and expand their competencies in their chosen career field.

Career options are diverse, and our concentrations allow you to specialize in one of four areas. Each management major must have at least one concentration. Many of our students jump-start their careers through an internship program.
