Bachelor of Science in Management and eBusiness (MEBA)

Management and eBusiness at HU provides a unique opportunity for the student to learn about management and the technical aspects of modern businesses.  Instead of separate and isolated courses in technology and business, the core curriculum is designed to integrate management and business principles with the latest eTechnologies, such as the Internet, web technologies, social networking, mobile computing and wireless communications.  Specifically, the core courses cover business strategy, eBusiness, eCommerce, business management, business analysis and design, information technologies, media design, and the management aspects of marketing, finance and accounting with emphasis on eTechnologies (e.g., eMarketing and eManagement).  Experiential projects and a capstone course on enterprise architectures further serve to develop a practice based integrated view of modern enterprises.

The program is designed to prepare the student to lead and engage in business analysis, marketing, finance, project management, entrepreneurships, information technology consulting, information technology management, eCommerce development and business system design.  Because the University is located in the state capital, the student has access to a diverse array of government and business sites for suitable opportunities.
