WWCC is now offering a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Applied Management and Entrepreneurship. Today’s workplace is changing. Successful employees need both technical and managerial skills. More than ever, employers value the ability to think strategically, manage skillfully, and communicate effectively. Whether you want to advance in your current job or lead your own business, the BAS in Applied Management and Entrepreneurship at WWCC will help you take the next step forward in your career.

Why a BAS in Applied Management and Entrepreneurship?

Like other bachelor’s degree programs in management, WWCC’s BAS in Applied Management and Entrepreneurship prepares you for leadership positions. While traditional business programs focus on theory, an applied management program emphasizes hands-on application of management practices and knowledge. In addition to in-class projects, our program includes a capstone course to give you an opportunity to apply your skills to a real-world project.
