Planning and preparation are the keys to success in business. Running a business effectively requires a basic understanding of the principles of accounting, management, economics, business law and finance.

The two-year associate of applied science degree in applied business provides students with the skills and training needed to succeed in business. Instructors strive to equip students with practical understanding of the marketplace -- not just a "textbook" view of business.

The one-year applied business certificate provides students with contemporary management knowledge and skills to successfully lead private, public and nonprofit organizations through uncertain and ever-changing social and economic conditions. The curriculum also serves as the first year of training toward the two-year associate of applied science in applied business.
