Bachelor of Science degree completion program

The Northwest Difference

A major in business management at Northwest teaches students methods for managing and leading professional employees, motivating people on the job, producing quality products, scheduling maximum efficiency, and managing financial entanglements among companies. Students develop skills and knowledge in critical thinking, analyzing and effective communication techniques in a career. Hands-on approaches are utilized in preparation for a career in business while working in teams, learning negotiation skills, conflict resolution, operations of running a business, and presentation skills in upper level courses.

Bachelor of Applied Science Option

The Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) is a flexible, individually tailored degree for student who have pursued a vocational or technical degree.  Students who have earned a technical Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.), Associate of Science (A.S.), or certificate from a regionally accredited community college may find a B.A.S. appealing for the following reasons:

  • Shorter time to degree
  • Maximize the transfer of vocational and technical courses towards a four-year degree
  • Requires fewer Northwest Core courses (general education courses)
  • Personalized and flexible degree plan
  • Cost effective
