Wildlife and Outdoor Enterprise Management

This four-year university program is the first Bachelors of Science (BS) Degree to be created to train professional operational managers for hunting/shooting preserves and resorts, gamebird production companies, fishing resorts and outdoor experience companies (i.e., trailriding, nature study, bird watching, back country hiking/camping, etc.).

While our students take courses in wildlife and fisheries management, this program is not a traditional wildlife and fisheries biology program of study. To create professional managers, this program incorporates a series of business, hospitality management, natural resources, wildlife and fisheries management courses with "in-the-field" outdoor skills courses. This program was designed with input from working professionals from across the United States.
