Whether you want to own your own business or climb the corporate ladder, increase your chances of success with a background in business. Applied Business Management is a degree-completion program designed for students with previously earned credits in any major to apply those credits directly to a bachelor’s degree. No matter what your previous coursework entailed, a more detailed understanding of business can help you navigate the corporate or small business world.
This program works with your schedule by offering rolling admissions during the Spring or Fall semesters. You can also choose your course load; taking one class at a time, or enrolling as a full-time student.
Students must have at least 50 transferable credits to be eligible for the program.
Applied Business Management is a degree-completion program that is offered entirely online. Students must have at least 50 transferrable credits from an accredited institution. These credits should include 20 credits consistent with the general education requirements for an associate degree. Any deficiencies will require additional coursework.
A student with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Business Management will be able to meet all of the outcomes of the Business Technology & Management bachelor’s degree.
The student, in conjunction with the department chair, develops a sequence of courses to best meet their background and needs that still satisfies the degree requirements. A typical curriculum is shown here.
Note: All of the courses below or equivalent coursework must be completed. All coursework from a regionally accredited institution not used to meet the above requirements may be used as elective credits toward the 120-credit minimum provided it does not duplicate other coursework being used.
