AS in Management Curriculum

The Associate of Science in Management offers students the best of Yeshiva University—a rigorous Jewish and business education combined with our distinctive on-campus experience. Faculty at Yeshiva University’s Katz School have designed a 60-credit program that integrates traditional business disciplines such as management, accounting and human resources with emerging fields, including data science and information systems. The imaginative College Experience courses will employ a project-based curriculum, where students will learn by doing. Ideas will be brought to life, using New York City as a classroom. The AS in Management is a full-time, residential program.

Upon successful graduation, students will have a choice of pathways. If they wish to continue their education, and have proven themselves academically, students can apply for admissions to bachelor’s programs at YU and elsewhere. Students who graduate from the AS in Management with a GPA of 3.0 or higher will have the opportunity to enroll in the BS in Business Management at the Sy Syms School of Business. Students who wish to pursue professional opportunities will be well equipped to join the business world.


Course Sequence

The AS in Management is a cohort-based program, which means that all AS students enroll in the same courses each semester – with the exception of Jewish Studies.


College Experience and Leadership Seminar

New York City Skyline

Through a project-based curriculum, students will gain a deep understanding of the central role New York City plays in global commerce, international policy, technology innovations and current events. Each one-credit course is focused on a distinct theme:

  1. The City’s Impact on the Global Stage
  2. Work as A Place for Innovation and Incubation
  3. New York’s Cultural, Artistic and Intellectual Traditions
  4. Your Story: Praxis and Reflection

As part of each College Experience course, student participate in a unique leadership seminar taught by the AS program adviser. The seminar gives meaning to students’ educational experience through the integration of classroom work, leadership & management principles, and extracurricular and interpersonal activities. The seminar is designed to be interactive, offering students insight into their personal leadership challenges and strengths. Students gain a clear and articulate vision of their leadership abilities, learn practical ideas for achieving excellence, and identify tools for inspiring others to do the same.
