Bachelor of Science in
Technical Management

The Bachelor of Science in Technical Management (BSTM) degree program at ERAU offers eight majors within a curriculum that is strategically focused for industry opportunities across many disciplines. Depending on which major is chosen, students will learn subject matter that’s relevant to their industry. Professors in the Department of Management & Technology are internationally recognized practitioners in their field and bring both hands-on experience and academic expertise.

Not only can you choose a specialized major, BSTM students can add a second major in the program — or a minor inside or outside the College of Business — and still complete their degree within 120 credit hours.

The BSTM is the only program at Embry-Riddle in which students have that flexibility without having to exceed the degree credit limit. This saves time and money for those students who are looking to tailor their educational experience.

Students can also reduce credit requirements for their bachelor's degree by up to 12 hours by earning transfer credit from another educational institution or work experience.

BSTM courses, faculty, and the program as a whole are vetted by some of the most reputable accrediting agencies around. The BSTM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP), courses within the program are accredited by the Project Management Institute (PMI)®, and security courses are accredited by the National Security Agency (NSA).
