Business programs prepare students to perform effectively in private businesses and public-service organizations. The required courses of study provide the foundation for professional careers in organizations of all sizes. The curriculum is designed to develop critical thinking, communication skills, basic computer knowledge, awareness of ethical issues, and expertise in selected business management disciplines.

Undergraduate degrees available include the Accountant and Financial Institutions Occupational Endorsements, the one-year Accounting Technician Certificate and Small Business Management Certificate, the two-year Associate of Applied Science in Business Administration (A.A.S.), and the four-year Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) with an emphasis in Accounting, Human Resource Management, Management, or Management Information Systems.
