ME Degree Program-
Bachelor of Science in Management Excellence

The ME Management Excellence Degree Program at Tennessee Wesleyan College is an accelerated hybrid format designed specifically for today's non-traditional students - working adults.  The program allows you to complete your degree in about 15 months - 1 to 2 nights per week - 1 to 2 classes at a time - 5 weeks in the core courses and 10 weeks in the emphasis courses. Classes are conveniently scheduled for 6 p.m., making for an easy transition from employee to student. The classes are filled with other non-traditional students just like you -- approximately the same age, with similar personal and work obligations.  Not only will you gain knowledge from your coursework, but also the interaction in the classroom adds great value to your education.  You will progress through the program with the same cohort group of people from beginning to end.  Strong communication, delegation, organizational and team-building skills are developed in this type of learning environment. In the Evening Program, students and professors discuss real-world issues and experiences, and a variety of networking opportunities are available.
