On Thursday, Nov. 9, the Board of Trustees for College of Western Idaho (CWI) unanimously approved a resolution supporting CWI offering a Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) degree in Business Administration in Fall 2024.
The BAS degree in Business Administration would offer all students, with a focus on adult learners and Career Technical Education (CTE) graduates a highly affordable and convenient option for continuing their education at CWI. These students could pursue career opportunities in the more than 18,000 business-related job openings in CWI’s service area that require a bachelor's degree.
“Offering a BAS in Business Administration at CWI would be a great opportunity for our college and the community to meet the workforce needs of the Treasure Valley,” said Board Chair, Molly Lenty.
CWI plans to offer a BAS in Business Administration in Fall 2024, pending approval from the Idaho State Board of Education.
“This effort underscores CWI’s commitment to providing accessible, quality education that meets the needs of our students and the Treasure Valley," said CWI President Gordon Jones.
