The purpose of the BAS in Industrial Technology Management (BAS-ITM) is to provide students with multi-modal delivery of a Baldrige-quality education as applied through the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) accreditation in industrial technology management, general business and the liberal studies. Given ITM’s requirement for significant coordination between multiple departments and firms, the program emphasizes communication, collaboration and teamwork, including virtual teamwork and its facilitating technologies. After laying a solid foundation with a course in the fundamentals of logistics, the program provides courses in supply chain management, operations management, and project management. To broaden the strengths of our graduates and better prepare them for success in the business world, these courses are accompanied by a carefully selected set of business courses. Courses emphasize pragmatic, real-world-relevant content and utilize realistic experiential assignments, including many complex team-oriented assignments, with the students regularly encouraged to apply the ideas and assignments to their own firms. In the capstone course, students work with local business entities on a project aimed at utilizing all the skills gained in the coursework for the ITM degree. The faculty, a mix of academics and experienced practitioners, are highly qualified following the guidelines of the ACBSP, with quality further promoted through a comprehensive outcomes assessment program as well as a mentoring program in which full-time faculty annually evaluate the course content of part-time faculty.
