Wisconsin businesses are growing, and five key industries in particular are driving innovation and advancement in their sectors – and effectively shaping Wisconsin’s future and job market: biotechnology, energy, food production, manufacturing and water technology.
While each of these emerging industries are noticeably distinct from one another, they share two common traits. First, each industry requires a degree to experience career-long development and growth. The second? There is one degree that would open the door to career paths in all five industries: a bachelor’s degree in business.
Wisconsin is home to many large employers in these emerging industries—all supported by hundreds of smaller suppliers. A single business degree can open multiple doors within several growing industries.
So what about those people that have business experience, but never earned a degree? To respond to this growing need, UW-Parkside offers the UW Flexible Option Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program, enabling busy professionals to earn a degree – online and at their own pace. The best part? Students can leverage knowledge from previous work experience to help them earn a bachelor’s degree more quickly.
The UW Flexible Option is a competency-based program that isn’t structured around semesters or class schedules. Instead, students enroll in 3-month subscription periods that start at the beginning of any month. They prove their mastery of the curriculum by completing projects. And they progress at their own pace with the support of faculty and Academic Success Coaches who help students create a learning plan, contact instructors and stay on track to earn the same popular degree others are earning the traditional way.
Now, with the flexibility and innovation behind the UW Flexible Option, business professionals can realistically earn the most popular degree in America: a bachelor’s in business administration.
