Business Management

This program is designed to provide adult learners with a degree that is inclusive of prior learning, offers great flexibility in terms of course/program content, and allows them to complete their business degree in a highly flexible online environment. The program is geared toward working adults who are currently in a role that does not require a degree but who have developed the functional expertise to take on a managerial role.

Local companies have told us that they often require new managers or supervisors to have a degree, and they prefer that the degrees be in business. This degree provides the graduate with the managerial knowledge and business skills employers are looking for.

Akron Advantage

All our courses are taught by our faculty members, not teaching assistants. Augmenting the full-time faculty are a few highly qualified business professionals who teach courses on a part-time basis.
