Bachelor of Professional Studies

 

The Bachelor of Professional Studies in Applied Management  is designed for working adult AAS degree holders who are graduates of two-year colleges, transfer students and Medgar Evers College AAS degree graduates.  The BPS in Applied Management allows students to build upon previous course work at the associate degree level.  Typically, these students will have studied career or job-related subjects in non-management areas such as allied health field, human services or other vocational or technical programs yet lack an educational background in management.
