The Technology Management degree is designed to allow a student who has earned an associate degree (AAS, AA, AS, or AOS) in a technical or professional area (or at least 60 credits toward such a degree) to complete a bachelor’s degree through this upper-division program. Students seeking entrance into the program will enter at the junior level since they will have already successfully completed at least 60 credits toward an associate-level degree in a technical area. The junior and senior years will have an emphasis in the development of business and management skills with a focus on technology applications. The program includes a significant internship in the final semester of the senior year.

A major feature of the degree is the program design that allows students with a lower-level professional/technical degree to advance into management/administrative positions in their respective professional or technical areas. It is also designed to provide them with the skills necessary to run a small-to-medium size business in their area of study or to manage a department, a division, or even their own business.

Graduates of this program are eligible for employment in many industries which require both a technical and business background.

The purpose of the BBA in technology management is to provide graduates with the management, administrative, and technological course work necessary to succeed in management and supervisory positions within the business environment surrounding their specific technical or professional field of study.

In order to earn the bachelor’s degree, students entering the program with an earned associate degree must complete all specified upper-level requirements for the bachelor’s degree, fulfill all required prerequisites for upper-level courses, and earn a minimum of 60 credits beyond the associate degree. The student completing this program will take courses that will result in: a) fulfillment of seven SUNY General Education areas through 39 credit hours, b) 52 credit hours of business course work, 45 of which must be upper-level.
