The Bachelor of Applied Science in Management program will broaden the education of associate of applied science and associate of science degree holders whose primary education is technical in nature. This program is designed to increase the managerial abilities of graduates who are skilled technicians wishing to move into supervisory roles.

The program is designed to allow students to complete their bachelor’s degree within two years upon transfer into the program.

Students will take part in a challenging business curriculum that includes talent management, career development, non-profit management, negotiations and adaptive leadership.
