Management is a people-oriented career requiring students to have an understanding of the role of management in a complex and dynamic society. For students with experience in a particular field, earning their degree in Management may open up employment and promotion opportunities in various aspects of industry, commerce, specialized institutions, and government.

Can students who major in Management transfer to a four-year college or university?
Articulation agreements with public and private institutions offer students who earn the A.A.S. degree the opportunity to transfer all of their coursework to the four-year institution. Students in specialized programs, or who earn an A.A.S. degree should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

What will students learn if they study Management?
They establish or upgrade their managerial skills. The program is a comprehensive blend of social science theories, organizational behavior and design, classical management theories, managerial processes, functions, and decision-making.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major? 
Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or by completion of the appropriate course.

How long will it take to complete this degree? 
Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
