Online BBA (OBBA) - Management


In the evolving global business environment, management is essential to business success, with goal identification, strategic planning, and effective resource utilization directly contributing to improved workplace synergy, employee motivation, and productivity. FAU’s Online BBA (OBBA) program in Management (Leadership and Applied Managerial Skills option) prepares students for management positions and career advancement opportunities in the industry of their choice through the development of a strong educational foundation in macro and microeconomics, information systems, human resources, financial analytics and business law.

As a Management major, students learn how to:

  • Coordinate the deployment of financial and material assets
  • Schedule, supervise and appraise the performance of the sales force
  • Analyze market research and financial performance to make optimal strategic direction decisions
  • Align organizational processes with company mission
  • Manage the supply chain to ensure high-quality products and optimal service

As markets become more complex, firms are experiencing a growing need for talented managers at all levels of business. Sales managers are able to leverage the strength of human resources, create new business opportunities and successfully respond to the challenges of rapid technological change, resource scarcity and growing compliance requirements to lower operational costs, increase productivity and improve sales potential. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of sales managers is projected to increase 5% from 2018-28, faster than average for most occupations. The medium annual wage was $124,220 in May 2018, with the top 10% earning in excess of $208,000.
