Business Administration

Apply

The Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration emphasizes broad management competencies in finance, marketing, human resources, economics, and computers. All of these competencies are needed in industry, nonprofit, and service organizations. The study of Business Administration focuses on how organizations develop and use strategies to compete in national and global arenas within the increasingly complex and changing socio-cultural, political/legal, economic, and technological environment.

Students in the program are encouraged to relate theoretical learning to practice and establish bridges between the classroom and the work environments. The Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration provides the framework needed for successful careers in high-tech industries, manufacturing, banking and finance, health care, communications, service industries, and nonprofit organizations.

The Business Administration degree is designed to provide students with options that enhance transfer to four-year institutions, or allow students to pursue employment upon completion of the program. The Business Administration program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) which supports transfers to many four- year institutions.
