The Bachelor of Arts in Management (BAM) degree provides students the opportunity to complete an undergraduate degree while continuing to work full-time.

In addition, the curriculum facilitates the development of leadership skills and core competencies in critical thinking and problem solving, project management, communication, teamwork, and ethics.

The program takes a scholar-practitioner approach to business education—providing students with the opportunity to both learn and apply business concepts.
