NAU offers many programs that are popular with our military students. The Bachelor or Science in Management is one of our most popular degree programs.

The Bachelor of Science in Management program is designed for adults with transferable college credit who are seeking opportunities for advancement in the field of business management. Students combine college credit from accredited institutions or non-traditional prior learning from a specialty field with a comprehensive management curriculum and relevant general education courses. They may also create their own subject area of concentration, utilizing National American University course offerings. Students enrolling in this program are encouraged to have specific career goals that align with their chosen area of specialty.
