Organizational Management Program ** Major


Organizational Management Program

The Organizational Management Program is an accelerated degree program designed especially for working adults age 25 and older who have earned at least 60 semester hours of transferable college credit. The Program seeks to provide students with knowledge of and skills in business and human resource management, basic accounting and finance, and organizational behavior. Graduates earn a Bachelor of Science degree.

The Program’s objective is to foster students’ educational and career advancement so that graduates will be prepared to start their own businesses or to assume leadership positions in business, industry, and governmental and non-profit agencies. Through classroom instruction and real-life application of instructional concepts, students acquire effective leadership skills, knowledge of business strategies, and the ability to assess organizational needs. In addition to classroom work, students must complete a Capstone Project consisting of the preparation of an original research paper and the presentation of a professional-quality oral summary of their research.

In November 2006 the Organizational Management Program received initial accreditation from the Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) a national organization that reviews business programs in colleges and universities. ACBSP accreditation is the recognition that a collegiate business program has met certain standards of quality. The Program’s accreditation was reaffirmed in 2016. In addition to recognition by ACBSP, the Program is associated with the Lambda Omicron Chapter of Delta Mu Delta, an international honor society that encourages and promotes academic excellence among business students.

Over the years, the Organizational Management Program has enjoyed considerable success. Many of the Program’s graduates have obtained better positions or earned promotions because of their higher level of educational achievement. During the Academic Year (dates) approximately forty percent of graduates were enrolled in a graduate program or had earned an advanced degree.
