Purpose:  The curriculum is designed for persons who plan to seek employment in contract management positions and for those presently in contract management positions who seek career advancement.  The occupational objectives include project manager, procurement analyst, contract administrator, contract specialist, contract negotiator, contract price analyst, and contract termination specialist.

Transfer Information:  Although transfer is not the primary purpose of an A.A.S. program, NVCC has articulation agreements that facilitate the transfer of this and other career-oriented programs to selected senior institutions.  Students interested in transfer should contact a counselor or their faculty advisor early in their program.

Admission Requirements:  In addition to the general admission requirements of the College, entry into the program requires proficiency in high school English and mathematics.  Students with deficiencies will require developmental studies.

Program Description:  The first two semesters of the curriculum are similar to other curricula in business.  However, in the second year students will pursue an individual specialty in contract management.  The curriculum includes technical courses in contract management, courses in related areas, and courses in general education.  Instruction will include both the theoretical concepts and the practical applications needed for future success in the contract management field.
