Student Experience

"If it were not for the help of others believing and seeing the greatness in me, I would not have seen it in myself. I have jumped out of my comfort zone, defined myself, impacted the lives of many, and accomplished each and every goal I set for myself."

More Information

Students seeking entrance must have completed or be concurrently working towards a technical or professional associate’s degree, certification, or similar credential in a technical or professional area. Technical/professional credentials would include an academic focus involving scientific or technological studies. This excludes majors with a heavy business management emphasis such as marketing management, business management, or any other major with a non-technical focus. Typically, students entering this major possess 60 credits or more focused in a technical or professional area of study. Final decisions on eligibility for admission to this major resides with the academic school dean or designee.

This major is designed as a Bachelor degree completion program. The curriculum allows students who enter with or are concurrently enrolled in 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.

All students entering the Applied Management bachelor-degree major will be considered for junior-level status, as they will have earned the first two years in their respective associate-degree majors. This applies to Pennsylvania College of Technology associate-degree graduates as well. It is expected that students will carry a minimum of 60 credits from the associate's degree into the bachelor's degree curriculum. Where students have not met the bachelor-degree requirements for the first four semesters, they will be required to take the necessary courses in order to complete the degree. At least 36 credits of the final four semesters of the student's profile must be satisfied by Penn College courses.
