June 25, 2012 | Chase Replogle
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Evangel University will offer the Bachelor of Science in Management as an online program beginning in the fall 2012 semester.
The BSM is designed for working adults who have previously completed 60 credit hours.
“For the past 11 years, we have offered a business degree in evening classes in an accelerated format,” said Bernie Dana, chair of the business department. “This popular program starts three new cohorts each year and has filled a need for many in our community.”
Evangel has had requests for an on-line version of this degree from many prospective students who live further away from our campus, who have irregular work hours, or who travel.
“The online delivery of the tested Management curriculum will allow students from across the nation to enroll and complete their degrees at Evangel University,” said Dr. Jeff Fulks, director for graduate and professional studies.
The need for the online degree completion program has come to light during the recruitment process for the seated program. The program will include tools to help prospective students be sure they are well-suited for online program learning.
“In the few weeks since the online BSM program has been approved, the news has been spreading quickly,” said Fulks. “We are looking for a full cohort of students to begin in the fall semester”
This program is the second online major approved for undergraduate students in Evangel’s Professional Studies program. The first online program was in Civic Affairs.
