You'll study the scope and place of business in our economic system and gain an understanding of the internal organization of business, basic management skills, accounting, and the principles of marketing, management, and relevant areas of business law. You will develop a working knowledge of computers, and all students in the program participate in an off-campus cooperative education experience.

The associate in applied science (A.A.S.) degree program in Business Administration is designed for students considering careers in the expanding fields of sales, advertising, human resources, office management and related areas.
