Purpose

A nationwide shortage of qualified management and supervisory personnel is hindering the progress of individual companies and curtailing economic growth at all levels. This program is designed to meet both the needs of people preparing for careers in business management as well as men and women who are already actively engaged in business and industry. It is structured to provide functional management theory that can be applied immediately to the job. The Management program includes studies in basic principles of management, general administration, and related areas. The course of instruction outlined for this program is designed to lead to an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree. The program is available to both day and evening students. Management is a Local Articulation program.


Admission Requirements

Students are admitted to the Management program through the regular college admission procedures (see Admission Regulations section). Students will receive an A.A.S. degree upon satisfactory completion of the courses below and upon making formal application for graduation (see Curricula section).
