This major serves as a business capstone to the various applied science programs offered in manufacturing at the community colleges. It is designed to prepare you for careers in manufacturing that require both technical skills and business knowledge.

If you have already completed an A.A.S. degree in a manufacturing area and are interested in continuing your education in business and management this is the perfect degree for you.

Facts
U.S. companies can’t fill an estimated 600,000 positions in the manufacturing sector that require post-secondary education (The Manufacturing Institute, 2011). Due to this growing skills gap, the number of unfilled manufacturing jobs may reach 3 million by 2015 (The Society of Manufacturing Engineers, 2012).

Accessible Program
Convenience is key to a successful education in today’s world. Courses in this degree program are offered online and on campus, making it easy to complete your bachelor’s degree on your schedule.
