(College of Business)
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) Degree
The Management (Accelerated) bachelor's degree program offers a general business education to individuals already holding an associate degree. While the program will appeal to many of Johnson & Wales University's Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts graduates, the program also welcomes graduates from other associate degree programs.
Upon completion of the program, graduates will demonstrate the ability to
- Apply basic understanding of fundamental business areas including accounting, business law, economics, information technology, marketing and management.
- Solve problems by identifying alternatives and justifying decisions using higher order thinking skills.
- Identify and analyze ethical issues while implementing socially responsible business practices.
- Apply effective written and oral communication skills.
- Identify and analyze the effects of global forces within the business environment.
While some JWU associate degree graduates in Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts will begin careers immediately after completing the two-year degree, others enter The Hospitality College to pursue a bachelor's degree in Food Service Management. The bachelor's in Management (Accelerated) program provides a third option for these students: the opportunity to earn a bachelor's degree from JWU's College of Business.
At some campuses, JWU graduates of the two-year Culinary Arts and Baking & Pastry Arts programs will be encouraged to enroll in a "Summer Bridge" program between their second and third years of study. The Summer Bridge program will allow students to complete Principles of Management (MGMT1001) and Principles of Marketing (MRKT1001) at a substantial discount. Students who have not already successfully completed Information Technology for Business Professionals (FIT1000) will use the Summer Bridge program to test out of or successfully complete FIT1000.
By offering and funding the Summer Bridge program, the university will assist students in confirming whether a bachelor's degree in business is the best path for them to take before making a substantial investment of their own resources.
The Management (Accelerated) program's coursework builds a basic foundation by exposing students to relevant areas of accounting, business law, economics, information technology, marketing and management. Students may tailor their degree by selecting a two-course focus area that best suits their own unique goals. Potential focus areas include: operations management, human resources, international business, marketing and entrepreneurship. Students will also complete courses through the School of Arts & Sciences to help ensure they acquire skills important for professional success and personal and intellectual growth.
Upon graduation, students may be employed in a wide range of industries. In addition to gaining general business competencies and skills desired by employers, students may use their Management (Accelerated) focus area and/or associate degree education and training to position themselves for unique careers of interest.
