The objective of the Management and Marketing Program is to provide quality, up‑to‑date education for individuals who desire to enter, advance or update their skills, knowledge and abilities in the fields of management and marketing. The majors in this area are designed to prepare students for challenging and rewarding positions in business, industry, education, government and public service. All majors provide a solid foundation in business principles as well as business mathematics, accounting, computer applications and oral and written communications. A strong emphasis is placed on the application of business principles and theories to solve “real world” problems. Certificates provide an opportunity to secure expertise in special areas of concentration and the credits may be transferred to the more comprehensive management and marketing majors. Students may use a 2 + 2 program to transfer credits to Bachelor’s Degree Programs at several area colleges and universities after completing the two-year degree.
