Distance Learning & Online Applied Management Degree Programs

For students looking for a practical and theoretical management program a degree in applied management is just the program of study. More specific that a general business management program the degree in applied management gives students the hands-on tools needed to assume leadership roles in a variety of types of companies and agencies without requiring additional training and work experience. The courses will provide both a very specialized view of management as well as a strong understanding of the overall daily operation and long and short-term goal setting needed to be an effective manager. Graduates of the program can find employment as entry to mid level managers, project coordinators, supervisors and department heads in public and private sector businesses. With higher levels of education the possibility for upper level management positions is greatly increased.

Classes in an applied management program will include specific management classes such as human resources management, compensation and benefits, strategic management, effective leadership strategies, communication and interpersonal skills. In addition classes can also include problem solving, analysis and evaluation and conflict resolution. While the focus is on having students prepared with a strong background in management and business, other concepts such as planning, accounting and finance as well as marketing are also addressed in the various courses. Actual business management models are reviewed throughout the program.

Courses will also focus on the growing impact of technology and computers in business management and information exchange. For some students additional courses on networking, network security, databases and computer inventory and billing will also prove to be an asset as electives and optional courses. Students will gain experience in using the latest in programs and software in making effective and appropriate management decisions both in strategic planning and daily operations.
