An online bachelor of science in business administration with a major in management will be offered for the first time by the University of Tennessee at Martin.
It is one of only four AACSB-accredited online BSBA in management programs in the nation and is targeting business professionals who want to advance their careers by expanding their knowledge and expertise while obtaining a degree.
Joining a growing list of master’s programs and the bachelor of university studies offered through UT Online, all degree requirements for the BSBA in management may be completed online.
“This degree is a significant academic program which has little or no competition online,” said Dr. Tommy Cates, UT Martin Extended Campus and Online Studies interim director. “The UT Martin business program has always produced strong graduates, and the online delivery allows more students to acquire this degree.”
The program coursework and course materials are accessible online, 24/7, with discussion, e-mail, chat, assignments, examinations and Web-conferencing capability. Students have access to free tech support through UT Martin’s Help Desk, (731) 881-7900, each day until midnight.
The program is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International) Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Total minimum hours required is 120. The time required to complete the degree will depend on the number of program appropriate college credits that a person has earned. The new degree will offer potential students an additional avenue through which they can complete a professionally accredited business degree.
