The objective of the Business Program is to provide quality, up-to-date education for individuals who desire to enter into or advance careers in fields related to accounting, business administration, human resource, supply chain, digital marketing, digital media, and real estate. All business majors are built on a blend of courses that stimulate critical thinking. Degrees and certificates within the Business Program are designed to prepare students for challenging and rewarding positions in business, industry, education, government, health care, and public service.   Certificates provide an opportunity to secure expertise in special areas of concentration, and students may use most coursework to pursue associate-level degrees.
