B.A.S. Business with Management option

Department of Business

Bachelor of Applied Science


The Management Track under our Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to continue their education beyond their completed Associates of Applied Science (AAS) degree.  The BAS is designed so students can complete their bachelor’s degree in approximately two additional years, or four semesters, after they have earned their AAS.  This additional investment will provide additional professional career opportunities for the student.

The Management Track is designed to be a broad program that allows students to complete a general business curriculum as well as specific business coursework in an area of interest.  For example, a student will complete business coursework in accounting, management, marketing but can finish the degree with coursework that is directly relevant to their professional aspirations.  Students studying under the Management track can elect to finish with coursework in human resources, information technology, entrepreneurship, marketing, or project management.   The Management track has historically provided the student with many options for internships or full time professional employment.  Additionally, a number of our alumni have continued their education into various graduate programs including a Master’s in Business Administration, or Law School.

Students under this track will have the opportunity to work with faculty members who have a passion for teaching.  The members of the Business Department faculty bring a wealth of both academic and industry experience into the classroom and focus on learning through experience.  The Department has achieved standalone accreditation by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education (IACBE).

Graduates of the Business Department are flexible and can easily move between technical, and business professionals. Graduates interested in seeking an MBA are well-prepared since all the prerequisite professional courses required for admission to an MBA program are met.
