The Business Management Professional

The Business Management Professional course provides students the basic competencies involved in a leading a team whether from the very top of a company, middle management or first-line supervision. Managers at intermediate levels serve as the bridge between their staff and higher management understanding how to execute the project, exercising good judgment over costs and risks but also able to extract and rely on the talent of their team to get things done effectively. Good leaders are key to cultivating positive morale among their staff while also best situated to identify policies or procedures that are not working and improve upon them to benefit both staff and management. Effective managers have unique skill sets that promote collaborative, orderly and productive work environments from which everyone can benefit. Being an effective manager requires a fundamental understanding of leadership, organization and communication skills that will always be in demand by employers.

The Business Management Professional Course

Leading a team of colleagues or managing your own staff requires a set of leadership skills that are often few and far between in today’s business culture. Understanding the personalities working for you and with you, while also maneuvering to get the most out of the different skill sets and personalities on your staff is essential to effective leadership and productive management.
With the Business Management Professional Program, this collection of skills and knowledge will ensure students understand the delicate balance of leadership, motivation, delegation, and authority while fostering an environment of encouragement and teamwork. From business communication and basic supervision to the fundamentals of leadership and project management, this combination of courses ensures students will emerge with the confidence to make the tough decisions managers are faced with every day coupled with a comprehensive understanding of what it takes to be a true leader.

I had someone there every step of the way. They walked me through what could have been a very stressful process. It put me on a path that started an epic journey.

-Kasey, Fort Riley

Everything was easy and my advisor with The Major Group walked me through it all. This was my third time going to college and by far the least stressful enrollment process.

-Felicia, Ft. Campbell

I loved the whole process. Everyone was very helpful and made sure that the program I wanted to join was something I wanted to do. It also helped me put my goals in place.

-Crystal, Fort Riley

There was a lot of help along the way, which was great. It was smooth and everything went well.

-Elizabeth, Fort Gordon

It was easy, simple, and quick. There was someone there every step of the way to help you fill out all the required documents. I would recommend to all military spouses who want to go to school, especially if you’re a stay-at-home spouse.

-Aeisha, Hunter Army Air Field

Everything was very easy to do and got done rather quickly from start to finish.

-Anne, Schofield Barracks, Hawaii

The enrollment process was quick and easy. Lots of help when needed.
