Online Bachelor of Applied Science in Workforce Management and Leadership
The School of Business and Public Management offers an online Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) degree with an emphasis in Workforce Management and Leadership. The primary goal of the degree is to enhance the supervisory abilities of graduates of technical colleges. This degree can be completed in two years or less.
The Bachelor of Applied Science builds upon the technical skills and knowledge acquired in an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Applied Technology degrees. Those completing the program will be prepared to competently and efficiently engage their chosen vocational field as not only highly trained technicians but also as effective mid-level general and operations managers.
Students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Applied Technology career associate degrees at units of the Technical College System of Georgia or at other regionally accredited institutions can transition to the program with relative ease. Completion of an A.A.S or A.A.T. degree results in the awarding of 18 hours toward Area F and 18 hours of credit toward the area of supporting classes in the Bachelor of Applied Science degree program. To complete the degree students may need to take additional core and advanced courses.
