The Management Associate in Applied Sciences Degree is a flexible offering of business courses designed to accommodate the specific needs of currently employed students. Students will learn practical management skills in the areas of goal setting, leadership, problem solving, human resources, and team building. These are skills required of successful employees, not just managers. By acquiring and applying knowledge in this field, students enhance their visibility and marketability on the job while demonstrating their capability of accepting new challenges.

Participants in the Management Cooperative Education courses experience a significant and unique benefit. These classes allow students to earn 12 credit hours by applying management concepts to their present jobs. Thus, students bridge the gap between theory and practice as professional managers. This "real world" degree is beneficial for both aspiring managers and students who already have managerial experience.
