Are Bachelor’s in Applied Science Degrees Recognizable Among Employers?

By | September 13, 2015

My local community college offers an online degree for Bachelors in Applied Science for Technology and Management. I am currently going to this college for an A.A. degree. I also work full time as a network administrator which I do tasks for maintaining Windows 2003 server and Unix servers. My goal is to get a degree so that I can move up in the company. By getting this degree, I do not see it as a problem, since my employer said that in reality any kind of degree would help move myself up in the company. However, I also want to be prepared in the event that the company closes, which I don’t think will be likely to happen soon.

Since I have work experience, I found out that from the information provided, that I can use some of my existing work credit for college credits. I really would like getting my degree at this college since it is local, if I ever need to go to the college physically, and the education is fairly cheap. So, does anyone know how employeers look at this deg?

    I agree with your employer that any BS degree will help. In my opinion, it not the particular subject they teach in class as much as how you learn to lean, to demonstrate your abilities, to focus on tasks and work a longer term goal to completion

    Occasionally, I have seen job position requirements where they ask for particular degrees but it more common as you advance to see positions where they ask for a general degree and certain number of hours in particular areas, such as math or business,.

    As your career advances, communication skills and people (management) skills will become much more important than your technical skills. I know a number of people who current work has very little to do with what they majored in college.
