IACBE logo AccreditedThe technology management BBA is designed to allow you to take your professional/technical degree to new heights. We’ve constructed this program to provide you with the hands-on business, administrative, and technological course work necessary to advance into management and supervisory positions in your field. That means you’ll have the skills necessary to run a small-to-medium-sized business, manage a department or a division, or own and manage your own business.

In order to earn the bachelor’s degree, students entering the program with an earned associate degree must complete all specified upper-level requirements for the bachelor’s degree, fulfill all required prerequisites for upper-level courses, and earn a minimum of 60 credits beyond the associate degree. The student will take courses that will result in the fulfillment of seven SUNY General Education course areas.


  • The technology management degree is designed to allow a student who has earned an associate degree (AAS, AA, AS, or AOS) in a technical or professional area (or at least 60 credits toward such a degree) to complete a bachelor’s degree through this upper-division program.
  • The program includes an internship in the final semester of the senior year.
  • Graduates of this program are eligible for employment in many industries that require both a technical and business background.
  • The college offers technology management courses online, making it possible for students who transfer in credit or attend other colleges to earn their degree from Alfred State in technology management. This approach is perfect for working professionals, adult and returning students, or anyone who needs high flexibility in their academic schedule.
