Ohio University–Chillicothe, Ohio University–Lancaster, and Ohio University–Southern offer a two-year program of study in business management technology leading to the Associate in Applied Business degree. The program offers theoretical concepts taught by instructors who bring practical hands-on knowledge to the classroom. Courses offered take a management approach to the functional areas of business operations (i.e. sales, marketing, supervision, planning, advertising, purchasing, etc). The principles of continuous quality improvement are used throughout the program. The BMT major requires a 12-hour concentration to be determined in consultation with your BMT campus advisor. Concentrations may be designed from a wide range of existing BMT courses or other programs, and may be chosen from areas of study such as marketing, quality, small business administration, real estate, organizational communications, and computer applications, among others. For additional information, contact the director of business management technology at your campus.
