Business Management

Why study business management?

The combination of classroom instruction and on-the-job training offered through SFCC's business management program provides the ideal framework to help you develop the skills you need for a career in management, marketing, advertising, merchandising, personnel, or supervision.

SFCC's two-year Associate of Applied Science degree program offers a rigorous class schedule as well as a two-month summer internship that allows students to apply business principles in a real world setting. The required internship, during which you apply the skills developed in the classroom, is an essential part of the business management program.

There are three specialties within the program.

  • Management - if you enjoy serving as a leader, making decisions, analyzing information and implementing solutions
  • Marketing and retail - if you are creative, possess good communication and human relation skills, enjoy problem solving, and are team oriented
  • Office management - if you are organized, like to solve problems and are detail-oriented

In all of these specialties you will learn goal-setting, coordinating, decision-making, motivation, leadership, ethics, and communication skills.
