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.
