Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by School

The Bachelor of Applied Science with a major in Technology Management degree program prepares graduates to move into supervisory positions in businesses and industry, retail environments, law offices, and travel or tourism related businesses. Courses in management, marketing, and accounting help students blend their specific expertise with new technology skills. The curriculum combines experiential learning opportunities in the A.A.S. degree with vital topics such as using technology to enhance management, marketing, personnel relations, professionalism, and quality control.
