How Do Online Programs Work?

Most online associate's degree programs in applied management or a related field use Blackboard or some other virtual classroom software for course delivery. Such programs allow instructors to upload class materials, audio and video files, assignments and grades to your course page. You'll communicate with your teacher using e-mail and online discussion forums. Typically, students taking online courses need high-speed Internet access and up-to-date computer hardware and software.

What Courses Will I Take?

In addition to general education classes, you'll study accounting, business law, macroeconomics and human resources in an associate's degree program in applied management or a related area. Some associate's degree programs in business management allow you to specialize in a particular area, such as supply chain management or healthcare. Your specialty will determine the types of classes that you take; for example, supply chain management students may take classes in logistics, transportation, procurement, warehouse management and international shipping.

What Can I Do with My Degree?

Virtually every field employs managers. With an associate's degree in applied management or business management, you may qualify for entry-level management positions or supervisory roles in administrative services, retail, manufacturing or advertising. However, further education or experience is generally required to advance to upper-level management positions. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), advertising managers earned a median annual wage of $123,450 in 2014 (www.bls.gov). The BLS also notes that during the same year, the median annual salaries for sales managers, food services managers and industrial production managers were $110,660, $48,560 and $92,470, respectively.
