WYOMING  — The Higher Learning Commission granted approval for Central Wyoming College to offer a Bachelor of Applied Science in Organizational Management and Leadership degree.

The approval was granted March 20.

“This degree provides access to bachelor-level education for members of our community who could not obtain the degree by other means,” said Kathy Wells, vice president for academic affairs. “It is an important educational tool for growing and sustaining our community’s economy.”

The bachelor of applied science degree will have two options: business-entrepreneurship leadership or tribal leadership. Students will be able to declare the bachelor’s degree and choose which option they want to pursue during the admissions process.

The degree will develop the knowledge, skills and abilities required to successfully manage and lead with public, private, government or nonprofit organizations.
