Beginning Summer 2021 the CIS department will no longer accept CIS 110 from NC Community Colleges as an equivalent of CIS 1060; instead the course will be articulated as CS 1410 (2) and CS Elec (1). The course will still count for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 transfer students.

Appalachian State University’s Management (BSBA) degree provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to effectively and efficiently manage organizations to get the best out of their employees and to achieve strategic goals.

This includes learning how to attract and retain talented employees, and ensure that their activities are aligned with strategic objectives – both in existing companies and in new start-up ventures. Management majors also gain valuable leadership and interpersonal skills, along with an understanding of group dynamics – which, together, are the skills that truly define effective managers.
