College Catalog Fall 2012 - Spring 2013

Business and Technology Management - BBA

The Instructional Program

This hybrid curriculum provides students with the necessary applied knowledge and skills in the field of management and information technology, and builds on and complements the preparation in business administration and/or computer information systems students may already have. Students will be prepared to make strategic business decisions and to utilize a variety of information technology solutions to support the goals of an organization. Graduates will process budgeting, management, project-planning and leadership skills needed to be a global business leader.

The Bachelor in Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree program in Business and Technology Management does not replace the associate degree programs, rather it builds upon them. Students may enter as freshmen or apply for transfer into the program after earning an associate degree, providing the student meets the entry performance qualifications.  As in any field, increased levels of education and experience improve one's chances for professional and managerial advancement.

Students may participate in the Bronco Investment Group (BIG). The purposes of BIG are to learn and evaluate investment opportunities; acquire knowledge about money; use money to make money; learn to make wise decisions regarding money; and avoid major financial mistakes. BIG uses an online simulator to buy and sell stocks each week at club meetings.
