Central Virginia Community College, in partnership with Ranken Technical College and The Babcock & Wilcox Company (B&W), is pleased to announce a new Bachelor of Science program for Region 2000. Students with college credit in technical areas such as welding, machining, manufacturing and engineering now have the opportunity to complete a Bachelor of Science in Applied Management (BSAM) degree from an accredited technical college in a local setting.
The program was developed to meet the needs of area students – many of them current employees at B&W and other Region 2000 employers – who are seeking a flexible undergraduate degree program that builds on their technical aptitude and existing college and/or work experience while providing the business-related knowledge needed to pursue supervisory or managerial positions. By partnering with Ranken to offer bachelor’s-level courses online, CVCC is able to offer students an accessible degree that has been expressly designed to meet the needs of Region 2000 employers. The BSAM program’s curriculum, which was developed with input from B&W includes project management, global business strategy, risk management, marketing, employment law and small business management.
An informational session on the new BSAM program will be held in the Multipurpose Room at CVCC’s Merritt Hall at 7 p.m. on December 9. For more information or to register for classes, please call (866) 4-RANKEN or email bsam [at] ranken [dot] edu. (also see more info below for this event)
