The Business and Management Associate of Applied Science degree offers a wide variety of options to prepare students for successful careers in today’s economy. The program consists of a common core curriculum and several career-focused concentrations. All students majoring in Business and Management must take the courses in the core curriculum and choose one of the concentrations.
