Business Management Curriculum & Degree Requirements
To earn your bachelor’s in business management from Marylhurst, you will complete 180-quarter credits (through a combination of Marylhurst courses and by transferring in credits from your previous college work). The degree requirements feature three main areas:
Business Management Major (60 Credits)
You will take courses that provide fundamentals in business management. Sample course titles include:
- Business Writing and Communication
- Business Statistics
Business Management Courses
In-depth coursework in business management. Sample course titles include:
- Human Resources
- Business Law
- Project Management
- Organizational Behavior
The capstone will ask you to consider the relationship of environmental issues to business decisions by drawing on knowledge of other academic disciplines and collaborating for responsible and ethical action. As part of the course, you will also complete a Learning Assessment to comprehensively evaluate the business knowledge and skills that you have acquired.
Marylhurst Core (28 credits)
The majority of your lower-division courses will be transferred in before you start this program. You will take the remaining fundamental coursework focused on the applied liberal arts such as communication skills, critical thinking, writing, problem-solving and leadership.
General electives (92 credits)
Choose courses outside of Business Management from Marylhurst’s diverse undergraduate programs to better define your career focus. Most Marylhurst incoming students transfer in credit from their previous college work or through our Prior Learning Assessment program that go toward their general electives.
The average time to complete the Business Management program is two years. Marylhurst is a degree completion institution meaning most of our students enter our university with some previous college credit, reducing the investment of time and financial resources necessary to earn their degree.
