Enrollment open for Clark College’s new Applied Management BA program

Monday, June 19, 2017

Clark College is hosting a second information session for prospective students interested in learning about its Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Management (BASAM) program. The session is Monday, June 19, at noon, in Gaiser Hall room 213, on the college’s main campus. Program faculty and advisors will be on hand to provide information about the program and answer questions.

Developed with input from local business leaders and introduced in winter 2017, the degree is designed to be career-oriented and combines technical, academic, and professional management courses. Students gain skills in managerial knowledge and leadership that prepare them to pursue managerial roles, advance their careers, or start a business. Example courses include Foundations of Management, Social Media in Business, Project Management, Human Resource Management, and Organizational Behavior. Classes are taught online and in hybrid formats, and the program is designed to be completed in two years.

“This program was specifically designed for working adults who already have an associate degree and are looking to earn their bachelor’s degree,” said Brenda Walstead, dean of the Business and Health Sciences Unit at Clark College. “Students have classes one night a week with a cohort, so they are building their professional network in addition to earning their degrees.”

Clark College is now accepting applications for students interested in joining the fall 2017 cohort. The priority deadline to apply is July 1; applications will be accepted until September 18. For more information or to apply, contact Patti Serrano at (360) 992-2938, or basam@clark.edu, or visit www.clark.edu/cc/basam.
