The Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Organizational Management program, with concentrations in Management, Human Resource Management, Information Technology Management, and Public Safety Management, is designed to prepare individuals for management and supervisory positions in a variety of professions. The program provides degree completion opportunities for students from a variety of educational backgrounds, but primarily those with Associate degrees or the equivalent. The Organizational Management program is designed to provide skills and competencies that enable graduates to function as supervisors and managers, providing an excellent opportunity for individuals who have already entered the workforce and are interested in acquiring additional business management, leadership, and supervisory skills. Students will be exposed to the theory and practice of business management including finance, economics, law, human resource management, and organizational behavior.

Santa Fe College’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Organizational Management adheres to the State’s common course prerequisites. The program provides a career and educational pathway for students who have earned an Associate in Science degree in a professional or technical discipline, and provisions have been made for enrollment by students who have completed an Associate in Arts degree. Organizational Management baccalaureate students will select a concentration within the major and will complete a capstone course in their final year. The capstone course will serve as a summative evaluation point at which the students must demonstrate attainment of the program’s learning outcomes.

All Organizational Management baccalaureate degree seeking students must complete the basic degree requirements, including 36 hours of General Education and demonstration of foreign language competence. Due to the specialized nature of the Organizational Management program, students are strongly encouraged to consult with an academic advisor when enrolling in courses. This program is taught in both an online and a hybrid environment; some campus or approved testing center attendance is necessary.
