Career Possibilities

The bachelor’s in applied administration helps technical specialists advance into supervisory positions, usually in a field where a technical background is essential to understanding the organization.

Additional career options are listed on the Center for Exploratory Studies website.

Major Details

As a technical baccalaureate degree, the applied administration program has different general education, math and statistics requirements than the bachelor of business administration degree. The applied administration degree maximizes the transfer of previously earned technical credits. This is a “two-plus-two” degree; requiring only two additional years of coursework beyond the two years already spent earning an associate degree.

Students graduate with a bachelor of technical and applied studies (BTAS) majoring in applied administration.

Depending on your background, your advisor may suggest that you enroll in beginning accounting, statistics or other courses to help you prepare for the technical core of the BTAS program.

(Students who wish to pursue a bachelor of business administration should complete the associate of arts in pre-business administration before progressing to their third and fourth year courses at the UC Carl H. Lindner College of Business on the main campus.)
