Business Technology & Management (AAS)

Whether you want to own your own business or climb the corporate ladder, increase your chances of success with a background in business. This program will give you a broad education in accounting, relevant computer skills, management, human resources, public speaking, and professional communications.

All of our degrees utilize hands-on education. For this program, that means presenting to clients, working with a team, and creating detailed reports. Each class will offer you a new way to look at business and the corporate world.

This program has a lot of fun activities as well, including a formal business dinner where students dress in professional attire and learn the rules of formal dining. You will also learn resume writing and job interview skills by attending mock interviews with faculty and staff.

So, let’s get down to business.

A student with an Associate of Applied Science in Business Technology & Management will be able to:
