It expands student understanding of management, exposing them to several types of management, including customer relationship management, human resources management, knowledge management, information management, project management, quality management, risk management, and strategic management. Business law, communication skills, economics, operations, and professional development are also stressed throughout the course.

Two 100-item semester exams are included, and three hands-on, standards-based projects are provided to appeal to a variety of learning styles.
