Business Management

MCC Students
What is Business Management (BSAD)?

The nature of managerial jobs varies as significantly as the range of administrative services required by organizations. Managers coordinate and direct the many support services that allow organizations to operate efficiently. They perform a broad range of duties.

Specific duties for these managers vary by degree of responsibility and authority. First-line managers directly supervise a staff that performs various support services. Mid-level managers develop departmental plans, set goals and deadlines, implement procedures to improve productivity and customer service and define the responsibilities of supervisory-level managers. Some mid-level administrative services managers oversee first-line supervisors from various departments, including the clerical staff. Mid-level managers also may be involved in the hiring and dismissal of employees, but they generally have no role in the formulation of personnel policy.
