NORTHFIELD, Vt. — Norwich University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies (CGCS) officials announced the new online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program, which is designed to provide students with the communication, leadership and problem-solving skills needed as a high-level manager. The program is set to begin in May 2020.
“This program follows Norwich’s tradition of providing students with rigorous and relevant programs needed to develop skills that keep them competitive in the field,” College of Graduate and Continuing Studies Vice President and Dean Bill Clements said.
Similar to other University’s College of Graduate and Continuing Studies programs, the online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program will reinforce Norwich’s 200-year history of preparing students to be leaders in their fields. The program curriculum will provide a foundation in management principles and practices so students can lead a team effectively. The program will start with six concentration paths, which include: cybersecurity management, human resource management, leadership studies, procurement and contract management, financial services management and supply chain management. Concentrations in accounting, finance and marketing will be added to the program postlaunch.
The online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program will continue to follow the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies’ generous transfer credit policy. Students have the opportunity to transfer up to 90 semester credit hours of prior college coursework, on-the-job and military training, certifications and College Level Examination Program exams so the program can be completed in as few as 18 months. The program also offers multiple start dates per year so working students can start the program when it best fits their busy schedules.
Coinciding with the program launch, the College of Graduate and Continuing Studies named Daniel Alcorn, MPA, MBA, as the program manager of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program. Alcorn has been an adjunct faculty member in Norwich’s business and management department since 2012; he teaches and has developed courses in management and business.
“In a world that is constantly and quickly changing, effective managers are needed now more than ever,” Alcorn said. “The goal of this program is to provide students with the management expertise necessary to lead businesses and face challenges in the modern world.”
The online Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program is part of the Norwich University CGCS 2020 new program initiative. Norwich is launching seven new online programs throughout 2020. New programs include three new online bachelor’s programs: business administration, computer science and information systems, and data analytics, and four new online master’s programs: accounting, business analytics, information systems, and nurse practitioner, a new concentration within the existing online Master of Science in Nursing program.
Students who are interested in earning a master’s degree may enter Norwich’s online Master of Business Administration program upon completion of the bachelor’s program.
