Business Management

Associate of Applied Science Degree
Program Description
Sioux City Campus

The Business Management program is aimed primarily at students seeking employment as first-line supervisors and entry-level management. The program is also of interest to the student who is a first-line supervisor and needs to improve his or her skills.

Students acquire a background in basic business including accounting, budgeting, math and economics as well as practical supervisory skills. As companies downsize and eliminate middle-management positions, the need for qualified first-line supervisors increases dramatically.

Though virtually every company employs first-line supervisors, the amount of training provided in-house varies considerably. Many courses in the degree program may be accepted toward a baccalaureate degree at some colleges and universities.
