Earn a B.S.B. in management from the University of Wyoming and learn how to best utilize enterprise resources to navigate business challenges. Every business major will walk away with a tool belt ready for any business endeavor. That's just one of many reasons to choose UW. 

Experiential Learning Opportunities 

Students will encounter a variety of experiential learning experiences in the B.S.B. management program. For example, case discussions focused on protagonists in actual business situations help students understand dilemmas to which they might apply their marketing knowledge. Computer simulations require students to integrate learning about marketing with other departments within a mid-size or large corporation. Classroom business partnerships bring an issue or project for an actual business or non-governmental organization into the classroom for students to research and to make recommendations.

We’re privileged to have world-class faculty at UW. One example is Dr. Jeff Covin. Dr. Covin is one of the most distinguished scholars of management strategy currently active today. He has held chaired professorships at Georgia Tech (13 years) and Indiana University (22 years). Dr. Covin’s research on corporate entrepreneurship has highlighted the importance of firms taking an entrepreneurial orientation to challenges they encounter, such as pursuing effective new-product development to counter rivals’ brands in marketplaces. 

Student Organizations & Networking Opportunities 

Relationship building continues to be an important element of success in business. As an extension of the UW College of Business, marketing majors are offered the same opportunity to grow their networks through various organizations. Students can join UW's chapter of the American Marketing Association which offers programs that cover careers in marketing and an annual trip to the AMA Collegiate Conference held in New Orleans.

Being a part of the Management program at the University of Wyoming has not only provided me with technical skills for my professional career but has made me aware of the importance of interpersonal skills for life after school. The Management program has been excellent at incorporating real-life scenarios into the classroom and would consistently provide us with case studies that gave students context. Professors across the department were extremely helpful in expanding my network with business executives and provided guidance for future work opportunities. Group assignments, highly-skilled personable staff, case studies and course material combined have laid a foundation that will allow me to succeed greatly in my professional career.
