HAMBURG, N.Y. – Hilbert College announced that it has restructured its undergraduate business department to introduce four new bachelor degree programs. 

Hilbert now offers bachelor’s degrees in business management, global business management, small business management and sports industry management to accommodate the diverse field and the interests of incoming students.  Hilbert is accepting applications for the Fall 2013 semester.  Previously, Hilbert’s business department offered only a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Business Management prepares students for today's challenging and highly competitive business environment. The curriculum is based on critical knowledge, marketable skills, and specific competencies critical to successfully managing in the global economy. In addition to helping students build core knowledge in business, the B.S. in Business Management focuses on specific skills and competencies in functional, business, and strategic areas of management.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Global Business Management (GBM) meets the needs and demands of today's global economy, which is complex, highly integrated, and multifaceted. The GBM curriculum prepares students to meet new challenges in global markets by providing broad-based knowledge and understanding of topics and concepts in global business, as well as specific business skills and competencies for employment with businesses and multinational corporations, non-government organizations (NGOs), multilateral banks, and government agencies.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Small Business Management (SBM) is designed to meet specific management and human resource needs of small and medium-sized businesses. Given the importance of small businesses to the marketplace and job creation for the U.S. economy, this major prepares students to function successfully in small business environments by helping them gain knowledge and skills necessary to own, operate, and grow a small business. This program is ideal for the young entrepreneur or family member who hopes to carry on and eventually run the family business. The proposed major will help students gain broad-based knowledge and understanding of topics and concepts in business with added emphasis on small business management and entrepreneurship.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Sports Industry Management is designed to provide students with a practical foundation in business disciplines coupled with the real world experience of internships. In addition to the practical application of business courses, students will complete a core liberal arts curriculum that ensures that Hilbert graduates of the sports industry management program are confident writers, strong public speakers and have the ability to organize, plan and lead in a host of sport related industries.
