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.

The program culminates with the creation of a Capstone Experiential Portfolio, which acts as a record of the insights you will gain from this real-world experience. Further, the Capstone Experiential Portfolio builds value in both your personal and professional life by outlining how you plan to apply this new knowledge to your life and career.
