The BAS in Applied Management is designed for students who have completed an associate degree from an institution of higher education whose institutional accreditation is through an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or technical training provider. The degree is intended for students who have expertise within a specific technical area, experience working within that field, and who seek to further their education and move into management or administrative roles by completing the requirements for a baccalaureate degree.
