    Business Studies

    Degree information

    The Business Studies career plan is designed to provide students with a general knowledge of business theory and with the basic skills to prepare them for employment in business or government or transfer to a four-year school. With its elective options, the program can comfortably accommodate students’ varying needs and interests within an overall business framework.


    Business Studies students will:

    • Build a foundation in general education emphasizing skills in oral and written communications, mathematics, literature, and science
    • Recognize contemporary business operations through studies in management, accounting, economics, and sales
    • Identify theoretical principles underlying human behavior and motivation and stimulate application of such principles through marketing projects and simulations
    • Apply various concepts and norms of ethical behavior and their application in particular cases and in students’ personal experience
    • Use computer skills, particularly as they relate to business and accounting applications
    • Demonstrate an understanding of today’s multicultural world through studies in American and global history
    • Construct a self-directed study into their programs to ensure that specific academic and career goals are met
