Tennessee Promise

Fast Track Management

Earn your associates degree in four (4) semesters with Southwest's new Fast Track degree in Business Management.

This exciting new degree program will begin in Fall of 2015 with a group of students who will stay together in what is called a "cohort" throughout their degree. Designed with the serious adult learner in mind, students entering the program should be prepared for the rigor of multiple classes that only meet once per week. If you need any developmental classes, you'll need to have completed those before you start the cohort program.

For students who sign up, there will be an orientation/information session towards the end of the summer to help you prepare for the pace of this accelerated program. Each member of the cohort will be assigned to an advisor who will assist and advise you throughout the program.

The schedule for the degree is as follows:
