Pierce College has launched its fourth bachelor of applied science degree program.

Beginning in the fall quarter of 2019, the college will begin offering a Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Business Management (BAS-ABM) degree, preparing students for mid-level positions in high-demand industries, according to a press release.

It’s a two-year, flexible program designed for working professionals, and builds upon “the strong foundation” of the Associate in Applied Science-Transfer in Applied Business degree. Graduates of the transfer program are positioned to effectively transfer to the new program, and students with other associate degrees who meet all other requirements also are encouraged to apply.

“The Pierce College BAS-ABM equips graduates with the skills and knowledge employers need,” said Professor Miebeth Bustillo-Booth, BAS-ABM lead faculty, in a statement. “It’s an affordable, quality, and convenient option for working adults who have at least an associate degree and who want to move forward in their careers. It is for students who are looking for high-quality, credible alternatives to traditional bachelor in business programs. The program is designed for working professionals, including adults with children, and others in need of the flexibility not readily offered by traditional classroom formats.”

The program offers students a combination of hybrid and online courses, giving them the flexibility needed to balance work and personal responsibilities with their coursework.

Applications for the program will be available soon. Anyone interested in applying can sign up to be notified with applications are being accepted.
