Majors 

The Business Administration program at Northwestern is designed to prepare the student for a career in the field of business. This program provides background training in accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, and management information systems. Through study in these areas, the student will gain the thorough background desired in the business industry.

The Accounting program at Northwestern is designed to provide students with the requisite skills to be competitive for entry-level accounting positions and the background needed for growth into upper-level accounting positions.

Both programs are designed to prepare students to successfully enter the workforce or to continue their education in graduate or professional schools.

 

Other Division of Business Programs

The Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (B.A.A.S.) with a major in Technical Management is designed for students who have already earned an Associate of Applied Ats, an Asociate of Aplied Sience degree from a community college, or students who have achieved certain national certifications. The Associate degree classes or the certification will count for 10-30 credit hours.

Students have to complete 124 credit hours including 40-42 hours of general education coursework, 10-30 hours of career specialty (associate coursework or certification) and 41 hours of Technical Management Core coursework.

The Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership is a degree completion program for non-traditional students. The program is a joint effort of nine Oklahoma universities coordinated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. To be eligible for this degree program a student must:

1. Be at least 21 years of age;
2. Have completed at least 72 hours of college credit;
3. Have a minimum of 2.0 graduation/retention GPA in past college course work;
