BA in Management

Webster's BA in Management has been designed to meet the needs of younger students, as well as adults with business experience.
Webster Athens offers three different emphasis areas within the BA in Management: human resources management, international business and marketing.
Areas of Emphasis
Webster's BA in Management includes options to emphasize one area within the field.

Emphasis is placed on a behavioral science/management approach in which the understanding of individual behavior and group processes is combined with the techniques of the management of personnel within an organization. This interdisciplinary approach draws from the field of Management, Social Psychology and Organizational Behavior to read skills in interpersonal and intergroup relations.
