Management, BS

The Bachelor of Science in Management program is designed for adults with transferable college credit who are seeking opportunities for advancement in the field of business management. Students combine college credit from accredited institutions or non-traditional prior learning from a specialty field with a comprehensive management curriculum and relevant general education courses. They may also create their own subject area of concentration, utilizing National American University course offerings. Students enrolling in this program are encouraged to have specific career goals that align with their chosen area of specialty.

Both of these options for adult learners feature the Management Major Core, a curriculum designed to prepare students to become effective business management decision makers. Key principles and concepts in the areas of accounting, finance, marketing, management, information systems, and related functional areas are emphasized. The curriculum also helps students achieve their goals for career advancement or graduate study by fostering analytical reasoning skills within the context of problems and scenarios with which business decision makers are often challenged.

Course availability is subject to minimum class size requirements.
