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 two 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, start their own business enterprises, or work in the sales, advertising or e-commerce sectors, will find the Management and Marketing Option well suited to those career goals.
