An Interdisciplinary Degree Combining Business and Technology

The Bachelor’s of Applied Science (BAS) in Business Management & Technology (BMT) combines business, management, and technology skills, ideal for employability in the Puget Sound region. Employers are reporting high demand for a skill set that integrates an understanding of business with an understanding of technology.

The BMT degree equips students to be more than just a technologist or just a businessperson because the degree includes significant learning in current and evolving technologies and in established theories and practices in the dynamic business and management areas.  

Once accepted into the BMT program, students choose areas of focus. For example, students who want a stronger emphasis on technology may choose IT 330 – Cloud Technologies for Business, while students who want a stronger emphasis on business may choose BATECH 389 – Ecommerce Development Strategy. This is just one example used to show how this unique degree allows students to take courses in the business, management and technology areas that are best suited to their career path.

Completion of the BMT degree offers the student high value, highly compensated employment opportunities in the business and high-tech industries.  The BMT degree prepares students for a variety of job roles including but not limited to Program Manager, Operations Manager, Technical Program Manager, Product Manager, Product Owner, and Project Manager.
