Business Administration (A.A.S.)

Eight-Week Courses Offer Flexibility to Earn Your Business Administration Degree in Two Years

Online StudentThe School of Business offers students the option to complete the Business Administration (A.A.S.) associate degree in two years while studying entirely online. A schedule comprised mostly of eight-week classes allows students the ability to complete more coursework in a concentrated period of time and fit education into busy schedules. The program offers maximum flexibility for students with work, family or other obligations.

The A.A.S. degree program is known as a flexible option since it affords students the opportunity to create a program that meets individual transfer, employment or promotion needs. It is offered to students whose needs cannot be met through one of our other business programs or who need to create an academic program required by a specific employer or upper division college. Additionally, this program may assist the student who is unsure of an area of concentration by providing introduction to the several fields within business.

In addition to online study, degree requirements can be completed part- or full-time through both day and evening offerings.
