Business Technology & Management (BS)

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 more in-depth education in professional accounting, computer skills, management, marketing, human resources, presenting, and professional communications. A bachelor’s degree can open more doors than an associate degree alone, and future employers will want to see that you have the knowledge to adapt to the challenges of a dynamic marketplace.

As a Business Technology and Management graduate, you will be well-prepared to move into any career in business. The courses link with functional management areas through case studies and real-world situations.
