The coursework emphasizes integration of content and knowledge, hands-on learning experiences, practicing and developing management, technical, and soft-interpersonal skills, utilizing the latest information technology used in organizations, and balanced class and lab time. Students study computers, office systems and procedures, while skills such as communication, organization, interpersonal relations and critical thinking are also emphasized to prove agility in today’s fast-paced business world.
