Department Overview: WWCC’s BAS in Business Management prepares you to become a leader in your chosen industry. While traditional business programs focus on theory, an applied management program emphasizes hands-on application of management practices and knowledge. In addition to in-class projects, our program includes a capstone course to give you an opportunity to apply your skills to real-world scenarios.
A bachelor’s level degree is required for most mid to upper management positions. Managers with increased responsibilities also receive higher wages. Typically, managers lead a team while completing other administrative tasks. The essential skills of a manager include leadership, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, finance and project management. Students begin to attain many of these skills during the AAS degree program. The BAS degree will further enhance those skills. With a BAS in Business Management, students will be ready to perform the five functions of a manager – planning, organizing, staffing, leading and controlling. Managers in all sizes and types of businesses use these skills to accomplish department and company goals.
In addition to our primary Business Management degree, students could choose to concentrate in one of the following areas:
- Criminal Justice Administration
