Automotive Management - Bachelor of Science
The Automotive Management (AMGT) program,
formerly Automotive & Heavy Equipment Management (AHM), is
a baccalaureate degree program that focuses on providing the
transportation industry with state-of-the-art technical and
business managers for service, parts, sales, leasing, warranty,
and customer relations positions. Opportunities exist with car,
truck, equipment, and component manufacturers; suppliers;
dealers; fleets; insurance companies; the aftermarket; and

0 + 4 Option
New to the Ferris Automotive offerings is the 0+4 Option. It is available for high school graduates who know they want a technical and business management degree. This option has a technical focus the first two years, and students have an opportunity to take 12 credits in a focus area such as a second language, technical writing, technical training, international business, e-commerce marketing, or obtain a minor in another discipline. This option allows students to tailor their degree to their specific area of interest, with advisor consent.
The third option is a Minor in Automotive Management for business majors and others who desire a solid overview of the business and cultural side of the transportation industry. The 18-credit minor prepares students to transition into sales, marketing, distribution, and customer relations positions within industry.
Since the fall of 1996, the 2+2 Option has also been offered in the greater Detroit area at the Macomb Community College University Center. Courses are offered in the evening to cater to adults who need to work full-time and pursue the degree on a part-time basis. Full-time AMGT faculty members deliver major courses, over a three-year rotational schedule. Students take the general education and general business courses through Macomb Community College, any institution of their choice, or a combination of colleges or universities.
