|Description:||The Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Management is designed and delivered in a non-traditional format. It is offered through the Adult Learners Professional Studies (ALPS) Division of the university. It is for mature adults (at least 21 years of age) who are employed, have at least the equivalent of one-year of post secondary education, and want to complete their undergraduate degrees. This is an accelerated degree completion format which enables students to develop interpersonal, self-reliance, leadership, problem solving, decision-making, written communications, and oral communication skills. Students also gain an understanding of research techniques and applications.
This B.A. degree prepares students to be managers in a variety of fields and businesses compatible with today’s employment market. Other graduates may consider further educational options, including the B.Ed. and M.B.A. degrees. Enrollment in this non-traditional, accelerated degree-completion program involves attending classes on a year-round basis, one night per week, for 24 months. The delivery follows a cohort team structure where facilitators are both educators and practitioners. Each student earns 60 credit hours by completing the program’s 18 required courses and an individual Applied Research Project.
