Industrial Management Technology (2278)

Florida Community College developed the Industrial Management program for active duty military service members and some civilians. You can attend class on-campus as well as on-line from anywhere in the world.

The program was created to help turn your background into your future by crediting your experience toward an A.S. or A.A.S degree. Apply the training or certifications you earned at work or in your military training. You can even use your experience to test out of subject-based exams. This program provides the credentials you need for promotion in the military or for transition into the corporate world.

The Management Technology degree program’s online option is grouped into 8-week units. You can complete your degree in 18 months or less. With applicable previous college credits, work or military experience, you can finish the program in 12 months or less.

Career Opportunities, Rapid Placement
Florida Community College partners with a military advisory committee. We structure your coursework to make use of your service experience and increase your opportunities to advance in rate and rank.

Certification and Articulation
This degree transfers to a four-year program through distance learning programs and universities throughout the country, including Capella University, Nova Southeastern University, the University of West Florida and others. See more information on articulation.

Estimated tuition is $3,984 (for Florida residents as of 7/06). Contact the program manager for additional costs (textbooks, fees, materials).
