Yellow Springs, OH (PRWEB) February 06, 2014
For students with some undergraduate experience who wish to complete their bachelor’s degrees, Antioch University offers a solution. The school’s Bachelor of Arts in Management program is now available in the online format. Just like the traditional on-campus program, the program combines the study of business topics with interdisciplinary courses that encourage exploration of the self, others, and our world. Graduates earn a valuable credential and develop a combination of business expertise and interpersonal skills that are in demand.
Coursework in this two-year degree-completion program draws heavily from the work of Douglas MacGregor, former president of Antioch and author of the classic management book The Human Side of Enterprise. The B.A. in Management curriculum covers traditional business topics, but also emphasizes collaborative skills such as team building, collaboration, communication, and adaptability. Students are positioned to become well-rounded managers with the critical thinking skills, awareness, and sensitivity to support individual, organizational, and societal success.
The online B.A. in Management curriculum also incorporates an emphasis in the growing field of project management through a robust choice of electives.
In addition to the courses in their major, B.A. in Management students take interdisciplinary courses that encourage students to explore their personal and professional experiences and how they relate to larger issues in society and culture. Students gain a global perspective on the human experience to color and inform their professional decisions and plans.
“This program offers more than the opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree— it offers the opportunity to experience Antioch University’s unique brand of education,” said Joe Cronin, director of bachelor’s programs at Antioch. “Along with an innovative business education that reflects current needs and employment trends, students gain insight into themselves and their relationship to our world in a way that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.”
Admission is open to individuals with an associate’s degree with minimum GPA of 2.0 or at least 40 transfer credits. Applications are now being accepted, and classes begin in March 2014 .
