School of Business & Public Management

Welcome to the School of Business and Public Management (SBPM). You will find exciting and varied degree programs. Also, you will learn about our community engagement as well as student organizations that will enhance your experience at the College of Coastal Georgia.

We offer bachelor level degrees in Business, Criminal Justice, Health Informatics, Hospitality and Tourism Management, Public Management, and Workforce Management and Leadership. Each of these degree programs offers a variety of areas of concentrated study. These areas range from Accounting in Business to Cyber Security in Criminal Justice to Non-Profit Leadership in Public Management. While these degrees are very different, the common elements in all areas of study are effective decision-making, dynamic analysis in an uncertain world, and meaningful leadership. We also offer the Bachelor of Applied Science in Workforce Management and Leadership. This degree is focused on individuals who have been technically trained who seek positions of leadership in their place of work.

We also offer a Career Associates degree in Culinary Arts. Our program in culinary arts is the only program in USG that is accredited by the American Culinary Federation, the highest accreditation offered in culinary science. It is also possible to add a BS degree in Hospitality and Tourism Management with only two additional years of academic work. This is a great combination for budding creative chefs who also see themselves as entrepreneurial restaurateurs.
