Business Management

DESCRIPTION

The Business Management program is designed to provide students with a broad background in the areas of entrepreneurship, marketing, management, human resources, finance, international business, project management, and technology. A strong emphasis is placed on the development of analytical skills and problem solving. Additionally, students are encouraged to relate theoretical learning to practice and establish bridges between the classroom and work environment. Students are also encouraged to participate in the campus business club and seek internships to network and further develop their skills. Opportunities exist everywhere for students who study business, from business and industry, to non-profit and service organizations, to owning and operating one’s own business. Virtually every business in existence relies on organizational and business skills to ensure that the business runs smoothly. Upon completion of the Business Management program, students seek careers in many different areas of business and/or transfer to four-year institutions. For students interested in continuing with their college education, transfer agreements with four-year institutions may be available. Call or email the department chair for details.
