CURRICULAR GUIDE

Associate in Business Degree

Curriculum Code: 0245  (Effective Fall 2000 - Summer 2005)

A manager plans, organizes, delegates, and controls entire projects from start
to finish.  The role cuts across all areas of business and organizational life
and has as its central purpose the increase of resources: personnel, money,
machines, and materials.  Managers supply the encouragement, coordination, and
leadership to achieve company goals.  Graduates of this program may qualify
for entry-level positions.  Addition of a technical or business specialty
increases one's employability.  Not all courses in this program transfer to
all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or
counselor before enrolling in any course.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a
mathematics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency
requirement, students may need to complete specific course work in
mathematics.  For information on how to fulfill all general education
requirements, see page 23.
