• Business Administration

    Ideal for students who want to receive a strong foundation in the basic areas of business.

  • The Business Administration Program leads to an Associate in Science (AS) degree, and offers options in Healthcare Management. The Program is administered by the Business & Technology Department and it is designed to provide a solid foundation for transfer to a senior college. Students will receive a strong foundation in the basic areas of business (management, accounting, finance and marketing) and will complete an internship that will enable them to bridge the gap between classroom theory and practical applications in the business world, and provide valuable experience for choosing a career and subsequent fulltime employment.
