External Degree Program. Areas of Competency in Business Administration.
Syracuse Univ. Research Corp., NY.
Syracuse University has devised an external degree program in business administration in which students may take area competency tests that will reflect their knowledge gained from independent study or other outside sources for a bachelor's degree. The areas of competency for the degree are: Financial Information Systems; Environmental Studies; Logistics; Quantitative Analysis; Accounting; Finance; Marketing; Operations Management; Personnel and Industrial Relations; and Advanced Quantitative Analysis. These fields are equivalent to the degree of study that makes up a major in the on-campus program. Courses other than business are required for the external degree in the areas of Humanities, Mathematics, Social Science, Biological Science, and Physical Science. It is still to be seen whether the external degree will be accepted on a par with the residential degree program by both the business and academic communities. (HS)
