McLaren Undergraduate School of Management

Imagine finishing your bachelor’s degree in just two years of remote classes. Come to USF and gain the knowledge and leadership skills you need to succeed not just in the for-profit business world but in public and nonprofit organizations as well.

Designed for Working Professionals

If you are a working professional or a community college student interested in completing your bachelor’s degree, the two-year Bachelor of Arts in Management (BAM) program is for you.

  • Fully remote instruction for maximum convenience and accessibility.
  • Two-year program with the potential to earn both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in as little as three years total.
  • Fundamental management disciplines such as leadership, problem-solving, critical thinking, and social responsibility are covered in subjects such as information systems, accounting, marketing, organizational behavior, and data analytics.

Learn More About The Curriculum


The cost is $1,190/unit (typical semester is 8 units). Because the BA in Management program is online, tuition costs more than 40 percent less than USF’s standard per-unit tuition. Rest assured that these classes are taught by the same highly qualified professors who guide all USF students. Scholarships and financial aid are available.

While a traditional business degree prepares you for careers in the for-profit world, a BAM degree prepares you for the public and nonprofit sectors as well."
