Bachelor of Applied Science in Business Management – Entrepreneurship Concentration

WWCC’s BAS in Business Management prepares you to become a leader in your chosen industry. While traditional business programs focus on theory, an applied management program emphasizes hands-on application of management practices and knowledge. In addition to in-class projects, our program includes a capstone course to give you an opportunity to apply your skills to real-world scenarios.

An entrepreneur is defined by the personal risk one takes-on in their pursuit of launching a new business, organization, product, or other form of enterprise. Reduce your risk by gaining the knowledge and skills you need to be successful in planning and launching your venture. This degree allows you to customize your learning to focus on topics most valuable to you.

Students with the entrepreneurial spirit will enjoy curriculum focused on project-based learning to prepare them for success. Students who achieve a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Business Management may continue their education and enroll in graduate programs.
