Davenport University is offering a new degree this fall to some individuals who have associate degrees in a specific trade.
Those with associate degrees in trades such as construction, foods, graphic design, health, industrial management, welding, automotive, engineering, HVAC, mechanical and electronic technology can transfer their credits to Davenport and earn a Bachelor of Applied Science in applied business in two years.
“This program is designed to give those in the trades a distinct advantage in the business world,” said Dr. Richard Pappas, president of Davenport University. “With this additional training, individuals will earn the confidence to take on a management or supervisory position – or even business ownership – in the business or industry of their choosing.”
The program is designed to build on students’ skilled specialty by developing their business expertise and foundational knowledge essential to understanding operations management, supply chain and logistics and enterprise systems.
“We realize returning to school, especially after you have an established career, can be daunting,” said Pappas. “That is one of the many reasons why we offer flexible schedules and a Global Campus option, with classes online, in-person, or hybrid led by faculty laser-focused on student success.”
