Have an associate’s of Applied Science (AAS) in a non-business-related field? We have a plan for you.

Our Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences in Business program is designed especially for transfer students who already have an AAS degree in any field. In this program, you will learn basic business theory and business practice insights in all facets of the business world, from management and leadership to human resources and marketing.

Courses are offered in person or online, providing you with the flexibility needed to earn a degree while working and balancing family life.

Why BAAS at TWU?

TWU is devoted to transfers

More than half of our student body transfers from other universities and community colleges. Our collaboration with the North Texas Community College Consortium (NTCCC) allows for pathways leading to a BAAS in Business with the following community college partners:

  • Collin College
  • Dallas County Community Colleges
  • Hill College
  • North Central Texas College
  • Tarrant County College
  • Trinity Valley College
  • Tyler Junior College

Texas Woman’s also ranks 6th (tied) among U.S. universities for diversity, according to U.S. News & World Report.

A private school education at a public school price

Part of the Texas Woman’s experience is keeping costs low and education quality high:

  • No. 2 in the state for adding value to student’s earning potential, according to The Economist Magazine
  • 4th among all Texas public universities at keeping total college costs down, according to College for All Texans

TWU does more to build women leaders

Only 5.4 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women, and only 25 percent of senior managers and executives within those companies are women. TWU is working to help change that.

More than 70 percent of our faculty and staff across the university are women. While COB faculty prepare you to tackle the male-dominated world of business, our outreach staff work closely with employers to bring networking and employment opportunities to campus.

For our budding entrepreneurs, the Center for Women in Business is the state’s only university center dedicated to women’s entrepreneurship and business ownership. The Center provides tools for you to succeed including access to training/coaching, funding, mentoring and networking opportunities.

TWU believes in opening doors for its students

The Career Connections Center on each campus provides advising services and tailored career planning for our students and alumni, from career advising and networking to negotiating a salary after graduation. The Career Center has also implemented Handshake, a unique resume reviewing and job opening database that works to fast-track your job search.

The COB takes it one step further with a team of Outreach and External Relations staff that work with the Career Connections Center to keep our business students in-the-know on employment opportunities and networking events.

Your career opportunities with this degree span far and wide as you will be prepared to enter any area of business you choose. Our alumni work all over the country and world in industries such as:

  • Community and social services
