The Business Administration program provides opportunities for the business leaders of tomorrow to achieve a high-quality, high-value education that enables them to succeed in a competitive market.

We prepare you with a broad base of knowledge, giving you flexibility in your business career.  Interpersonal relations, leadership and decision-making are emphasized. Each student will work with assigned advisors to select elective courses that enhance their particular interest. Business administration provides broad-based business courses that prepare students for a wide array of professional employment and future development.

Students are expected to develop a basic understanding of the social, ethical, legal and economic environments of business and nonprofit organizations. The program focuses on developing a general background with a well-balanced understanding of business. Emphasis is placed on hands-on experiences and conducting real-world research and community service projects.

Associate of Applied Science degree, sometimes referred to as general business, provides a broad base of knowledge for beginning a business career.  But it is also designed to prepare students for positions in the middle level management, first-line supervisor, or other positions requiring leadership skills. The management focus on a business administration degree is the cornerstone of our School of Business Administration. Curriculum also pays special attention to fundamental business concepts such as accounting, business law, marketing and retail sales.

The AAS program provides a sound undergraduate education for entrance into a professional career.  The variety of courses broadens the students understanding in many areas including an organizational development and structure, the principles of management, leadership theory, as well as marketing concepts, the quantitative tools of decision making and the functional areas of the firm.  Skills related to the application of these concepts are developed through the study of computer applications, communications, team building, decision making, and service learning.
