LCC offers both full and part-time schedules, fully online. The BAS-OLTM is a career-focused, applied science degree to prepare graduates for positions in leadership, management, and supervisory roles in private, public, and nonprofit organizations. The program is designed for working adults with a range of professional technical associate degrees and a diverse set of work experiences and professional goals. LCC's program can help students gain the skills and knowledge needed to effectively lead and manage others through the study of behavioral and leadership theory, professional communications, project management, workplace and environmental safety, conflict resolution, theories of decision making, change management, ethics, and diversity.
