Associate in Science in
Embry-Riddle’s Associate in Science in Technical Management focuses on helping current or future managers learn how to analyze problems, perform research, and implement solutions. The program appeals to people from multiple backgrounds, interests, and talents while providing a competitive edge in a person’s career.
The Technical Management program offers a degree delivered from the perspective of people already working in a specific career field or the military, provides real-world content, is not textbook reliant like
other school degree programs, and enables students to apply what they are learning in the classroom immediately to any organization regardless of their position, rank, or job. It also allows students with little or no work experience to grasp the content as it delivered in a way students from any background can comprehend it.
