Offering additional business courses, the management emphasis is intended for individuals who wish to advance into management or supervisory positions. Students will learn the process of accomplishing the goals of an organization through the effective use of people and resources.
Management Information Systems (MIS) Emphasis
An MIS emphasis enables information technology graduates to plan all aspects of an information system and ensure that projects are implemented within budget in a timely way. The MIS track is designed for individuals wishing to advance in their careers as successful managers or directors of their organization’s information systems department.
This program heightens students’ awareness of the significant role entrepreneurship plays in the economy, both state and nationwide. These courses are designed for students who desire self-employment as a career. The classes will address the challenges of entrepreneurship, managerial processes, and organizational dynamics, along with integrating the necessary components for small business success.
Fleet Management Emphasis
This emphasis focuses on fleet management principles and best practices from multiple organizational perspectives, which ultimately results in a well-rounded fleet professional who is prepared for success regardless of what type of fleet they will manage throughout their career.
Like all Ranken programs, the bachelor of applied management program is not just an education; it’s on-the-job- management training that companies respect and look for when hiring.
In order to graduate, students must complete 30 technical credit hours. The 30 technical credit hours may come from Ranken technical credit, transfer technical credit or from prior learning assessment credit from a completed portfolio. Flexible evening courses throughout the year are specifically designed to accommodate the needs of the working adult.
In addition to offering workforce credit for applicants to our Applied Management and other degrees, Ranken has credit transfer agreements with several local colleges:
