In Saskatchewan, 4 out of every 10 people currently working in management are over the age of 55. Retirement is looming for nearly half our management workforce. This reality presents an opportunity for those with the right combination of skills, experience, and education.
The new Bachelor of Applied Management (BAMgt) degree program provides journeypersons and non-business diploma graduates with a unique opportunity to leverage existing education and experience into a bachelor's degree with only two years of additional study.
The BAMgt degree is designed to meet the emerging need for qualified managers by providing you with two years of course credit towards the four-year bachelor's degree. The program provides theoretical knowledge and technical training through applied learning opportunities. You will build knowledge and skills in a wide range of leadership and management disciplines including accountancy, human resource management, business communications, strategic management, leadership development, business analytics, finance, change management, risk management, commercial law, and economics.
On-campus classes are offered evenings and weekends, which makes completing the program accessible while continuing to work full-time.
This degree program is offered with the written authorization of the Minister of Advanced Education, effective July 1, 2019. This authorization was provided after the program proposal underwent a quality assurance review and was found to meet the standards established by the Minister. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the degree program and the degree will be appropriate to their needs.
