Elevate Your Management Skills

The General Business Bachelor's Degree specialization is designed to prepare students for roles as chief executives, labor relations managers, entrepreneurs, operations managers, personnel recruiter, sales managers, administrative service managers, social and community service managers and management analysts. The options are virtually endless since most career fields are actively seeking effective managers and leaders.

The admissions process follows the general bachelor's degree enrollment steps. Students are accepted into the program for the Spring and Fall terms only which start in January and August each year.

The degree is intended to provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the workforce in a mid-level management position. Graduates will demonstrate mastery of leadership and management skills associated with successful organizational managers in public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Students will complete coursework relating to current topics in strategic management, customer relations, economics, human resources, accounting, the legal aspects of business, and organizational behavior and communication.

These BAS programs are designed for students who already hold an Associate in Science degree (A.S.), Associate in Arts degree (A.A.) or higher from a regionally accredited institution, including recent graduates and those with experience in the work force. An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirement for entry into this program. AAS degree holders who intend to transfer into the BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.
