School of Management to Offer Two New Undergraduate Degrees
The University of Alaska Fairbanks School of Management is offering two new undergraduate degrees starting this fall.
The Bachelor of Applied Management (BAM) degree offers students with degrees or certificates an opportunity to develop their management skills. The BAM degree is for students who have technical hands-on degrees or certificates in fields like automotive technology, culinary arts, hospitality, health care, aviation, welding and others. The degree is designed to help students perform better in their current jobs, pursue management-track career opportunities or launch their own business.
The Bachelor of Sport and Recreation Business (BSRB) degree is designed for students interested in pursuing careers in sport, recreation and tourism. The degree emphasizes critical business skills including accounting, marketing, management, economics and finance. The BSRB degree is designed to prepare students for managerial positions in professional sports, fitness clubs, athletics equipment merchandising, tourism, and intramural and recreational sports.
“UAF enrollment is experiencing signs of growth and it is because of programs like BAM and BSRB that provide graduates with the necessary skills for today’s workforce,” said Chancellor Daniel M. White. “These key programs offer unique opportunities for UAF resident and online students.”
SOM will waive the $50 application fee, as well as the $25 late application fee, for the first 100 students to apply to either of these new programs for the 2018-19 academic year. Students may use the waiver code UAFBAM2018 for the BAM degree or UAFBSRB2018 for the BSRB degree when applying to take advantage of this offer.
