Beyond Graduation . . .

Managers advance through the ranks in an organization, acquiring several years’ work experience in various administrative positions before assuming general managerial duties. For managers of highly complex services, a bachelor’s degree, preferably in Business Administration, is usually required. A bachelor’s degree enhances a first-level manager’s opportunities to advance to a mid-level management position. Many students will continue their education and training by enrolling in Pensacola State College’s Baccalaureate Degree of Applied Science with an emphasis in Organizational Administration.
