Accelerated Studies for Adults Program (ASAP)

Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management

In a world where communication is key, Keuka College’s bachelor’s in organizational management provides learners with the chance to refine their methods.

Immersed in classes that combine communication with business, you’ll prepare for careers in a variety of fields, including human services, health care, corporate relations, sales, marketing, entrepreneurship and restaurant services.

Management is a broad degree that leads to many career opportunities.

Our students find jobs and begin their careers in profit and not-for-profit organizations. You will learn to effectively use resources such as money, equipment, information and people when making fact-based decisions. The program encourages a high level of personal development and gives you a foundation in business—by taking accounting, economics, finance and marketing courses—and in the soft skills needed to be an effective leader and motivator.

We’ll help you cultivate your verbal and written communication skills, decision-making and problem-solving abilities, people skills and time management strategies.

Throughout your program, you’ll complete an Action Research Project (ARP) as the real-world capstone to your studies. You’ll receive the tools to observe a workplace issue and then develop a solution to put into practice. Our students tell us that the results of their ARP are often implemented in their workplace, which builds value to their employer and their career.
