Bachelor of Science Degree (B.S.)
The Applied Management major prepares students with the skills necessary to meet the business demands of today and the future. The major focuses on integrating theory and practice so that graduates possess an understanding of the internal and external business environment, including economic, legal, behavioral, ethical and strategic aspects. The ability to communicate, integrate, and synthesize information from the various business disciplines using knowledge and skills in information systems, decision making, quantitative analysis, and financial modeling complete the major. In addition, students can select from among a list of directed elective courses that will complement their area of interest, which could include accounting, finance, management, marketing, information systems, or small business management/entrepreneurship.
This major is designed as a two-plus-two program. The bachelor of science degree in Applied Management will allow students who enter with an associate's degree in a technical/professional area to obtain a baccalaureate degree with the last two years having an emphasis in the development of business/management skills.
This major is available online via distance learning.
