Department Chair

Associate in Applied Science Degree, Career Program

The career program in Business Administration offers an excellent opportunity for students looking for employment following graduation. This program will enable students to develop the skills and abilities necessary for entry-level employment in such fields as marketing, sales, retail, banking, office management, and hospitality, among others. For those who want to concentrate in a particular business area, this program offers specialization in sales and customer service, administrative professional, and hospitality. To enhance employability, take business electives in one of these areas of specialization. While most of the coursework will be centered on general business subjects, the diversity of liberal arts courses will help students to better understand and relate to business associates and others.

Graduates will be able to demonstrate the business knowledge needed for entry-level positions in business and industry and the ability to compete for those jobs; specialize in one or more business concentrations; and use their broad based liberal arts education in multiple applications and occupations.

The program also provides opportunities for educational enhancement opportunities to local employers who want to advance the education of their employees.

Advisor assistance in selection of courses is highly recommended.

High school or equivalent preparation required: No special requirements.
