The Organizational Management major is designed to meet the needs of students who have completed two years or more of acceptable college credit—approximately 50 hours in general education requirements.
The students in this program typically are working full time and interested in completing their degrees in the evening while continuing to work. Many of our students already are employed in businesses, government agencies or school systems and are interested in moving into management positions.
The opportunity to attend class one night per week on a year-round basis allows an earlier completion of the degree—the goal is 18 months. Students also can take advantage of a program that offers credit for prior learning, where experiences such as time in the military can be converted to academic credit. Courses are offered in three semesters in which students register in cohorts.
Financial aid is available as well. Students wishing to apply should contact the Financial Aid Office four to six weeks prior to registration.
