Bachelor of Science in Applied Management (B.S.A.M.)

The Bachelors of Science in Applied Management (BSAM) degree is primarily intended for students who have completed a two-year degree program (+90 quarter hours or 60+ semester hours) from an accredited community college, regional campus, or technical college and who seek to further their educations by completing the requirements for a baccalaureate degree.

The program provides students with knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for advancement in the field of management. For the student with an associate degree, the program integrates the general and technical skills developed within associate degree programs with the professional skills and dispositions inculcated in a bachelor’s of management degree program.

With appropriate advising, students will take a sequence of courses that will: 1) meet Ohio University’s general education and baccalaureate degree requirements; 2) follow naturally from and amplify the learning experiences in their associate degree subject areas; and 3) qualify them for an immediate career in management or for entry into a Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program.
