Planning and preparation are keys to success in business. Running a business effectively requires a basic understanding of the principles of accounting, management, human relations, math, communications, customer service, computers, law, finance and logic.

The applied business management certificate provides students with a foundation of contemporary management knowledge and skills to successfully lead private, public and nonprofit organizations through fast-paced and ever-changing social and economic conditions. The curriculum also serves as the first year of training toward the A.A.S. degree in applied business.

Courses cover basic knowledge and skills, emerging technologies, advanced procedures and interpersonal skills. Potential careers for graduates include entrepreneurship, and entry-level positions in business management, tourism and human resources.
