Organizational Management

Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management

Program Overview:

The major/area in Organizational Management (OM) is a degree-completion program for non-traditional “adult” learners to be offered in the evening and is an extension program of the University. Coupled with the general education program of the University, it is intended to lead to a Bachelor of Science Degree. Extensive reading and writing assignments are required between class meetings.

Students are expected to progress as a group from one module to the next, with courses offered in succession.

An “Experiential Learning” portfolio program (see course description EL 480) may be used in conjunction with the OM program. The program is designed with enough flexibility to meet the needs of students with a minor concentration from an Associate degree, or by a combination of transfer and additional courses, if not using the Experiential Learning program. Students who graduate from the OM program are required to meet the current general education requirements of the University, in keeping with the liberal arts philosophy of all our programs.

The OM program is a more general, non-traditional version of the major in Business Administration, applicable to executives, administrators, and decision-makers in many types of organizations. Each course has a final examination in addition to other evaluations of students such as assigned papers.
