Business Management AAS

The Business Management degree is for students who wish to work at the supervisory or management level in a retail or service business, or to prepare for small business ownership. The first level concentrates on entry-level skills, attitudes, and knowledge. The second level emphasizes supervisory and personal management skills as related to positions beyond those of entry-level in business, institutions, and public service. Courses allow for part-time employment in career-related jobs under the supervision of an instructor. The student organization, Collegiate DECA, is recommended as part of the program; this allows opportunity for practice and development of group participation and leadership skills similar to those found in successful entrepreneurs. Upon completion of the Business Management program, students will:

  • Plan, organize, and communicate with team members
  • Achieve both individual and team goals through planning and organization
  • Communicate effectively in writing, listening, and speaking
  • Supervise and manage daily operations in retailing
  • Develop a business plan
  • Demonstrate effective salesperson skills to enhance customer service
  • Demonstrate understanding of sound financial decisions
  • Understand the legal impact of the law with regard to small business ownership
  • Use technology to increase efficiency

Completion of a Technical Skills Assessment is required.
