The Mid-Management program is designed for students who have at least five years of supervisory work experience. The curriculum builds on this work experience by awarding academic credit for both this experience and nontraditional schooling. The remaining degree hours are drawn from general studies and business courses.

I. Management Evaluation: 18 Semester Hours

Management Evaluation will be awarded via an appraisal of documented work experience and non-traditional school as described in sections A and B below.

The courses may be completed through any combination of the following means as long as a minimum of 6 hours is achieved: any CLEP examination, USAFI course or test, military service schools, cooperative education, industrial courses, college transfer credit related to management or supervision, additional MGMT, ECON, ISDS, MKTG, or FINR courses offered at Southwest, or some of the special courses offered by the Corporate Training & Continuing Education Department.
