No matter how good an idea or level of enthusiasm one has, a strong foundation is needed when building and running a successful business.
To ensure students are prepared for whatever venture they choose, UM-Dearborn’s College of Business created the small business management major. The program combines knowledge areas needed to thrive in a competitive market—everything from human resource management to accounting to personal selling.
“The approach of including all aspects of a business under one umbrella is unique—the Small Business Management program is the only one of its kind offered in the region,” said Karen Strandholm, strategy and management studies department chairwoman. The program debuts this fall.
