Strayer University Forges a New Path for Technical Students to Move into Management


Launch of New Bachelor of Applied Science in Management Program

Strayer University, a national leader in innovative educational
programming for working adults, launched a new Bachelor of Applied
Science in Management program. This new 180 quarter credit hour
curriculum will be available to all online and on-ground students. The
program is offered in 43 states and pending regulatory approval in
several others.

The Bachelor of Applied Science program is designed for students who
already have a technical or allied health associate's degree. The
program allows students to develop and master management skills like
critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making, allowing them
to become better leaders in their respective fields. Additionally, the
program awards credit, where possible, for students' practical skills
and years of industry experience across technical and allied health

Associate students can transfer up to 126 quarter credit hours toward
their Bachelor of Applied Science degree, including the required 54
quarter credit hours that must be transferred from an applied science

"Our students want to advance their careers and improve their lives, and
we're confident this program will allow working professionals in
technical fields, from health care technicians, to HVAC experts, to
automotive employees, to do just that," said Nicole Morris, Dean of
Curriculum, Strayer's School of General Education and Professional
Studies. "And with the number of credits that can be transferred into
this program, our students may be able to translate their previous work
and industry experience into credit hours towards their degree."
