Is the B.A. in Management degree program for me?

If your goal is to develop a broad business background and gain the competitive skills needed to be a great manager, City University of Seattle's Bachelor of Arts in Management degree program can help you get there. You'll develop an understanding of what makes an organization work - specifically, the people - and how to build a strong, successful team.

Now thanks to a special, innovative partnership between CityU and Shoreline Community College, you can turn your 2-year degree into a 4-year management degree - without ever leaving campus. It's smart. It's convenient. It's the easiest way to earn the degree you need for the career you want.

What will I learn in the B.A. in Management program?

You’ll build on the knowledge that you've already gained at Shoreline Community College, and CityU will take it from there - teaching you what it takes to be an effective manager. You'll learn about teams: how to build them, how to play a role and how to lead. Oral and written communication are key to your B.A. in Management degree program; you'll improve your skills in these areas. And you'll pick up the project management techniques and research skills you need to continue learning long after you leave CityU.

What can I do with my B.A. in Management degree?

A bachelor's degree in Management may lead to more job opportunities with a higher starting salary. If you're already working in your field, a management degree could help you earn a promotion.
