Business Administration (A.S.)

 

The business administration degree and courses are designed to prepare students for work in either profit or not-for-profit organizations in the 21st century. Rapid changes in organizations are continuing to change the nature of work. This rapid pace of change will continue to provide many people in organizations with opportunities for challenging jobs. With reductions in the number of middle managers, many workers' jobs become more interesting as organizations provide opportunities for planning, working with others, developing new ideas, and implementing new concepts. Business courses are designed to prepare students for this exciting and challenging work environment. The business administration degree provides students with the flexibility to pursue personal interests. Students completing the degree may choose to transfer to a four-year college, move immediately into work, or combine work with further education. Business faculty are available to discuss course and career planning and strongly encourage students to seek out this counsel.
