Overview — Geared to working adults, this Accelerated option enables you to take classes one evening per week year-round. Through the Business Management – Accelerated associate degree program, you will gain a wide foundation of business knowledge. Students develop a competence in the business functions of planning, organizing, directing and controlling. The program covers all basic essentials including management, business law, office technologies, accounting, risk management and small business management.

Accelerated courses are offered in a predetermined sequence that begins each January. Students who wish to start in fall can complete General Studies courses before beginning the Accelerated business courses.

The time to complete this degree is a minimum of two years for students who already have earned the General Studies credits, or three to four years for students who need to complete all 68 credits.

Since classes meet fewer weeks, students are expected to complete more of the coursework outside of class. Students should plan for homework to take five to 10 hours per week. The Business Management degree is also available in a non-accelerated format.


Career Outlook — Graduates of the Business Management - Accelerated program locate employment in a wide cross-section of businesses, from large industrial companies to small service-oriented franchises, as well as in self-employment. 

Added Career Value — Earn the Business Management technical diploma on your way to completing this associate degree. Courses marked with a  ^  symbol are those needed for the diploma program. Also see the Business Management diploma page.


Program Learning Outcomes — Employers expect program graduates to:

• Plan the operations of a business across functional areas

• Organize resources to achieve the goals of the organization

• Direct individuals and/or processes to meet organizational goals

• Control business processes
