Program: Business Management Technology (BMT). BMT is an associate degree program which provides comprehensive education and practical hands-on training in varied business activities designed to prepare students for entry-level management or supervisory positions in business, industry, government, or as a self-employed manager.

Business Management Technology refers to how business does business. The innovations in office equipment, the employee training required, the accounting flow of billing and paying bills, personnel issues, managing the workload - all contribute to the smooth operation of a business office.

What our grads have to say:
The outstanding learning experience at Wayne College made me wish I had attended sooner. The diligence of the faculty and staff made my transition back into the educational environment very easy.
Donald Diglaw,
Plant Manager, Wayne Dalton Door Systems

My time at Wayne College prepared me to be independent and responsible for my own work, with no teachers holding my hand. The professors took the time to learn students’ names, instead of looking at us as just ‘numbers’.”
Lauren Gordon,
