The department offers 10 programs for students desiring immediate employment, wishing to pursue a four-year degree, or looking to continue on with graduate studies. Courses during the first year in virtually all business programs are almost identical. This core block of courses enables students, during freshman year, to easily transfer from one business program to another with no loss of academic credit. Students may enter the programs in either the fall or spring semesters.
Technical accounting knowledge, communication and interpersonal skills, and career-related computer literacy are stressed throughout the programs. Many associate degree graduates go on to pursue bachelor’s degrees in business or business education, while graduates of the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) programs often go on to pursue master's degrees. Students completing virtually any Business Department two-year degree may easily transfer into one of our own bachelor's degree programs. Students in technology management, financial planning, or sport management (BBA) programs also have the advantage of participating in a semester-long, 12-credit internship during their last semester.
