Program Description and Goal
The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Supervision and Management prepares individuals for supervisory and management roles and positions in private, governmental, and nonprofit organizations. This program will focus on developing the potential of students in the dynamic and competitive global environment by providing meaningful learning experiences and effective instructor-student interactions. The BAS Program uses a 2 + 2 model that requires the completion of an Associate Degree or 60 credits from a 2-year, 4-year college or university prior to entry. The curriculum emphasizes a practical hands-on approach to understanding supervision and management in various settings, and to meet workforce demands. The core curriculum requirements build the foundation and knowledge of supervision and management along with coursework in a selected concentration: Supervision and Management, International Business and Trade, or Technology Management.
