An associate of applied science (AAS) in business administration with a marketing specialty emphasizes developing essential skills for students to be successful in entry-level marketing positions. The program helps students develop fundamental skills in advertising, consumer behavior, marketing, market research, promotions, and sales. Students are prepared for e-Commerce, entrepreneurship, retail and wholesale marketing. Individuals who are looking to advance their careers in marketing may opt to continue their education at the baccalaureate level.
All students graduating with an AAS or level II certificate must complete LSCS Student Success Initiative (SSI) requirements. To determine your SSI status, see a college advisor.
