This unique program is offered to students who come to Lakeland having already completed an associate degree in a technical or highly specialized field at a two-year college or technical school.

The program allows those experienced students to build upon their expertise by adding a full range of business, accounting and economics courses. With the "management side" of their specialty then completed, those students can graduate with a bachelor's degree in specialized administration that references their specific field.

Students who major in specialized administration will be able to:

  • Apply the central principles of business and business administration, specifically to the students' chosen areas of expertise
  • Comprehend the ways in which economic institutions and behavior at various levels — personal, business and social — influence administrative practices and decisions
  • Specialize in non-business subject areas in order to explore business opportunities connected to the students' areas of expertise
  • Communicate business and economic information to stakeholders within specialized fields in a clear and professional manner
  • Appreciate and abide by the ethical and legal rules by which business entities relate to one another and to society
