HAMBURG, N.Y. – Hilbert College announced that it has introduced a new Accelerated Degree Program in Business Management geared toward adult learners.

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Business Management is the third program added to Hilbert’s ADP curriculum.  Hilbert also offers a B.S. in Conflict Studies and Dispute Resolution and a B.S. in Organizational Development through the school’s Center for Adult and Graduate Studies.  Students enrolled in one of Hilbert’s Accelerated Degree Programs can complete their degree taking classes one night per week.  There are six, seven-week terms per year. As a full time student, you could complete up to 36 credits per year. To be eligible for Hilbert’s Accelerated Degree Programs, students must have completed at least 24 college credits from a regionally accredited college.  Students can transfer in up to 90 credits of the 120 credits required to graduate.

The B.S. in Business Management prepares students for today's challenging and highly competitive business environment. The curriculum is based on critical knowledge, marketable skills, and specific competencies critical to successfully managing in the global economy. In addition to helping students build core knowledge in business, the B.S. in Business Management focuses on specific skills and competencies in functional, business, and strategic areas of management.

Offering an integrated curriculum, Hilbert's bachelor-level business management major prepares you with a firm foundation in accounting, finance, marketing, business law and planning. You will gain a solid foundation in computer-based technical skills, a broad liberal arts knowledge base, and an understanding of the world of economics, business and industry. You will become skilled in organization, motivation, teamwork, networking, leadership, and ethical decision making.
