Crandall announces new Degree Completion pathway

Posted in on April 29, 2020

Moncton – Crandall University is pleased to announce that the University Senate has approved a new degree completion program option for working professionals looking to complete an undergraduate degree: the Bachelor of Organizational Management (BOrgM).

This Degree Completion Program is created for mature students (21 and over), to be taken on a part time basis with the ability to maintain full time employment. Classes are held in the evenings one night per week, and the 90 credit-hour degree can be earned in as little as two years.

90 credit hours in two years?

The BOrgM is available primarily to those who have at least some post-secondary education already. This could be university courses that were taken but the student was unable to finish, or even a one-year certificate program that they completed at a community college; they can use that prior education (up to one year’s worth of credits) toward this program, meaning they take 60 credit hours worth of courses over the two-year period. Courses are taken one at a time over 5-7 weeks, and the program runs year round, which is what allows the students to take part in the program while still keeping their full time job.

Two options for Degree Completion

The Bachelor of Organizational Management serves as a second option at Crandall for completing undergraduate studies and is designed to be the most accessible way to earn a Bachelor’s degree.

Students also have the option to complete a full 120 credit-hour Bachelor of Arts degree in Organizational Management (BA OrgM) if they already have two years worth of transferrable credits, or if they choose to take additional courses to augment their studies. This is particularly useful for those who wish to pursue post-graduate studies that require a 120 credit-hour degree for admission.

“Having both of these options available means that nearly anyone who wants to get their degree can have that option without having to quit their job,” said Dr. Roger Russell, Dean of Professional Programs. “We hope this new option for Degree Completion will empower more people to continue their educational journey.”

The Bachelor of Organizational Management program is set to launch in September 2020.
