The program of study in Management is designed to prepare students for leadership roles in the field of management. Management is the process of planning, organizing, staffing, directing and controlling activities in an organization that will result in the achievement of a common goal. Managers make decisions and direct resources so that organizational goals and objectives are achieved.

The Coles College of Business has special admission, progression, and graduation requirements that must be met by students seeking the B.B.A. degree.  In order to be able to take upper-division courses in Management and graduate with a Management B.B.A., students must successfully complete BUSA 2150 and the Coles College Sophomore GPA Requirement, and be admitted to the Coles Undergraduate Professional Program. Admission to the Coles Undergraduate Professional Program is separate from admission to Kennesaw State University. In addition, all business majors must earn a grade of “C” or better in all business courses counted toward their degree.
