Executive summaries for the programs, developed by UW Oshkosh’s Office of Academic Affairs, outline their value to students, to the workforce and to global, non-government human services initiatives:
- “The proposed Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Management major will provide the Northeast region with a workforce who can successfully serve a broad range of businesses and organizations – such as startups, corporations emphasizing entrepreneurial thought, family businesses, nonprofit organizations, global corporations, and franchises. Program graduates will be able to analyze and solve management problems; design, implement and evaluate programs to enhance the efficiency and effective use of resources; develop operational strategies; apply quantitative, analytical, and problem solving processes; identify and evaluate entrepreneurial opportunities; and interpret local and global trends that indicate the need for new products and services. The major will consist of 120 credits that include 41 University Studies Program (general education) credits; 24 business pre-core credits; 24 business core credits; and a 24 credit management component. The BBA in Management program will be offered through the UW-Oshkosh College of Business and will be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The proposed Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration degree in Management will be offered through the Department of Management and Human Resource management within the UW-Oshkosh College of Business. The program will leverage the expertise of current faculty. At present, the College of Business offers programs in Accounting, Economics, Finance, Human Resource Management, Information Systems, Interactive Web Management, Marketing and Supply Chain Management. The addition of this program strengthens the institution’s current program array by creating a management program that will produce graduates who are able to function within the context of intense market competition, globalization, and ever-evolving technologies.”
- “The proposed Master’s of Science in Transnational Human Services Leadership is a graduate degree program that will be offered by the College of Education and Human Services. The program will serve the growing local, national, and global non-profit sector by preparing students to effectively lead national, international, and transnational human service agencies and non-government organizations (NGOs). Coursework will focus on current service practices at the micro- or agency level to inform thinking and practice at the macro-level. Program content will serve to improve students’ ability to investigate, analyze, synthesize and develop programming to address real-time community issues. The major will consist of 30 graduate-level credits and will be offered entirely online.”
