Apply by May 31 for Bachelor of Applied Science in Business Management for the 2024-25 academic year

Applications are now open for Yakima Valley College’s Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Business Management (BASM) program for the 2024-25 academic year. Deadline to apply is May 31. The program is designed for prospective students who have earned an applied associate degree or 90 college level credits and need a pathway to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

YVC’s BASM program combines lower-division technical and transfer courses with upper-division credits in business management resulting in a four-year degree that combines hands-on application of management practices and an understanding of management theory. 

The program is designed to be convenient for individuals working a day schedule, as each class meets in the evening one time per week for two hours. Additional instruction and student interaction takes place online. Full-time students, those taking 15 credits per quarter, can finish the program in two years once prerequisites have been met. This program begins each fall and is open for full or part-time enrollment.

April McNiel, a graduate of the BASM program, said having the ability to earn her degree locally was essential.

“I am better able to meet my family needs as well as my personal career goals. If the BASM program were not available locally, I would not have pushed forward for a bachelor’s degree,” McNiel said.
