Online Business Management 

The business management program is available both as a fully online degree program and as a ground-based degree program at Hiram College.

Managers are decision makers who are in charge of a certain group of tasks or a specific subgroup of a company and they often have a staff of people that directly report to them. They are effective communicators who excel in critical thinking, problem solving, strategic planning, and management of procedures and policies. Taking coursework, as part of the business management program at Hiram College will strengthen student’s skill set in these areas and prepares them for a career in business management.

Coursework will include accounting, economics, marketing, organizational behavior, and research methods and design classes. Students will select either a marketing track or an organizational leadership track as the area of concentration in the business management major.

There are numerous career options with a degree in business management in both the non-profit and for-profit sector, and examples include: business analyst, account executive, human resources manager, and production manager. Our faculty members create an online learning environment that extends beyond the classroom and includes their real-world experience, which will fully prepare you for a career in business management.
