Program Details

The business administration program prepares a diverse group of students to succeed as the future managers and leaders within our local communities. The program supports studentsí needs to acquire skills that will allow them to establish a career and/or become more productive in their current organizations. We are particularly committed to helping students become professionals who are capable of thinking critically, working in teams, utilizing technology, performing research, making decisions, and communicating ideas effectively in a global economy.

An associate of applied science (AAS) in business administration with a business management specialty emphasizes developing varied skills for a range of jobs in business management. The program focuses on management, human resources, operational and team building skills that are crucial to running a business. Students are prepared for a variety of roles that require critical thinking, decision-making, leadership, project management, problem-solving, and supervision. Individuals who are looking to advance their careers in management will gain a thorough understanding of the essentials of successful business practices.

The program offers three specialty areas: Business Management, Human Resources, and Marketing. The courses within each specialty area can be taken either as part of the degree program or to satisfy the requirements for a Level Two Certificate. Required credits of the Level One and Level Two certificate programs can be applied to the AAS degree's requirements.

The AAS in Business Administration will transfer to several four-year universities into most commonly a Bachelors of Applied Science degree. Contact a business faculty member at any LSC college to obtain specific information.

Graduation requirement

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.

The general education core will transfer to a variety of colleges and universities, and the degree will transfer in whole to some universities. Through articulation, some students may have earned college credit while in high school. Contact a counselor, division advisor, or faculty member at any college for specific information about articulation and to obtain the recommended sequencing of courses.
