Business Management Technology

Bachelor of Science Degree

The Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management technology (MGT BS) program builds on the knowledge and skills acquired in the MGT AS and also in any of New England Tech's associate degree programs. 

Both the AS and BS in Business Management Technology emphasize a blend of technical, people/interpersonal, and analytical knowledge and skills, practicing what students will be doing in the typical workplace, integrating material across courses and functional areas of business, and becoming a life-long learner, in particular in the areas of technology and management. 

Students in the Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management program deepen their knowledge of management and leadership, accounting, finance, marketing, operations/service management, and effective interpersonal relationships and teamwork.  The program incorporates the latest Microsoft Office Suite and related technology advances such as online portfolios and use of social media in business. Students have two management electives to allow deeper study in a chosen area, such as entrepreneurship or sales and marketing.  Hands-on training is provided for management and interpersonal skills, such as negotiating, analyzing accounting information, or making presentations, as well as for more advanced use of Office Suite software including spreadsheets, databases, presentation and publishing software, and word processing.

Graduates of the Business Management Bachelor of Science Degree program may be qualified to work in many industries in a variety of positions such as business, accounting, or operations analyst, project manager, department or process supervisor, service manager, marketing analyst or customer service representative/manager, or business owner.   Graduates who are already working may use their degree to apply for promotions.
