The Organizational Management Bachelor of Applied Science's Accounting track provides students with the educational foundation appropriate for professional management careers within the accounting and auditing departments of manufacturing companies, service providers, banks, non-profits and other financial organizations.
Students wishing to enter the Accounting specialization will need the following course prerequisites:
ACG 2021 - Financial Accounting
ACG 2071 - Managerial Accounting
The admissions process follows the general bachelor's degree enrollment steps. Students are accepted into the program for the Spring, Summer and Fall terms which start in January, May and August each year.
The degree is intended to provide students with the leadership skills and knowledge necessary to enter the workforce in a mid-level management position in public, private and non-profit sectors. In addition to the organizational management degree's core courses, Accounting track students will complete 15 credit hours focused on the basics of accounting, auditing and taxation.
This BAS program is designed for students who already hold an Associate in Science degree (A.S.), Associate in Arts degree (A.A.) or higher from a regionally accredited institution, including recent graduates and those with experience in the work force. An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirement for entry into this program. AAS degree holders who intend to transfer into the BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.
A bachelor’s degree can prepare students for the pursuit of advanced education based on the requirements of the master’s level program, so be sure to review the catalog of the university you're interested in and check with its admissions team to ensure your BAS degree specialty will meet its requirements.
