About the Program

The Business Technology two-year degree provides an opportunity for students to learn about
the business enterprises in society as well as prepare for various careers. This degree provides for
flexibility in selecting elective classes while allowing students to investigate a wide range of areas
within the business field. Students who want a general business foundation will be well served by
the Business Technology AAS degree. There are also three program options should students want to
pursue a specialized focus area.

For students who desire employment as bookkeepers, accounting assistants and billing clerks, the
Accounting Option provides advanced study in practical accounting using both manual and computerized
accounting systems.

Students who plan to supervise other workers, manage materials and human resources, or start their
own business enterprises will find the Management Option well suited to those career goals.
The Marketing Option focuses on product, pricing, distribution, and promotional strategies (suited
to jobs in both the traditional bricks-and-mortar marketplace, as well as conducting business using
the Internet). Typical jobs include retailing, sales, advertising, and e-commerce.
