Bachelor's and Certificate Admissions
Skilled managers who coordinate team efforts and fuel workplace morale are essential to organizations of all kinds and sizes. Being a good manager, however, requires more than just a will to lead. Excellent communication skills, fluency with technology, and insight into an organization’s financial and strategic underpinnings are all part of a successful manager’s toolkit.
Norwich’s online Bachelor of Science in Management Studies program helps prepare working adults in the public, private, and military sectors for mid- to high-level management positions. Designed for students who have at least 30 credit hours of prior college coursework or equivalent military training, the program builds on students’ work experience through relevant courses that emphasize general management theories and practices as well as leadership, communication, and technology skills.
Students in the management studies program can specialize in one of two concentrations: human resource management or leadership studies. Concentration courses add a layer of specificity to what students learn in their core courses, developing their capacity to navigate management challenges in a particular sector or work environment.
The culminating experience for all BSMS students is the capstone course. In this course, students conceptualize and execute a major project that applies their holistic understanding of management principles and best practices in the context of their concentration area. Capstone projects can range from a research study of a leadership problem to a strategic plan for implementing a new work initiative.
