Business Management

The Art and Science of Business Management

In the broad field of business management, organizations need individuals trained in the details of management. As anyone who has been part of a mismanaged project knows, managing people, projects, and assets is challenging. The NCU business management specialization is an ever-popular and general focus of study useful to individuals who hope to climb the corporate ladder or create their own company. In NCU’s business management specialization, you will focus on what business managers face and need to know in the 21st century, including how to manage a business by properly overseeing people and teams, as well as how to manage the day-to-day and long-term operations of a business organization. This specialization is also designated as a bridge program to the NCU FastForward Track


that allows you to transfer 12 credits towards a Master of Business Administration (MBA), if you decide to pursue this NCU master’s program.

Beyond the specialized courses designed to help you expand your abilities in your chosen field of study and profession; NCU offers the following benefits to students and alumni:

Unmatched Flexibility

One to One Engagement
