Why Earn Your Degree in Applied Management at UAF?
Gain management training in the technical field you want to pursue. Our online applied management degree is the only program of its kind in Alaska, and one of only a few in the nation. Here’s more about the opportunities you’ll find at UAF.
In 2008, I graduated from UAF Community and Technical College with an AAS in Process Technology. Working at Pogo Gold Mine for two years as a mill operator showed me that a higher level of education was necessary to become a part of the upper management team.I also recognized the importance of having upper management be knowledgeable in the technical side of the business to be able to effectively plan, organize and lead a successful industrial operation. In 2010, I enrolled at UAF and began taking business classes. I quickly realized the standard business degree was not preparing me for what I wanted to do after graduation. To remedy this, in 2014, I successfully completed an Interdisciplinary Bachelor of Technology (BT) in Industry Management that utilized 30 process technology credits in combination with a UAF College of Business and Security Management business curriculum. Upon graduation, I had a job offer waiting for me at the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, one of Alaska’s industries toward which I had tailored my degree. Since accepting that position in 2014, I have been promoted three times. Alyeska recognized that I was not just graduating with a business degree; I was graduating with experience that I could apply to the workplace.
