The Business Administration Lower-Level Certificate is designed for students who have completed a bachelor’s degree in a field other than business administration. As such, this certificate is intended to provide students with a business administration foundation which will prepare them for many federal government management and administrative positions. Although some of the courses in this certificate may transfer into the A.S. Business Administration and A.A.S. Business Management degrees, the purpose of this certificate is to provide the necessary additional business administration courses which will enable students to meet federal government management and administrative related position requirements.
Upon successful completion of this program of study, students will be able to:
- Apply appropriate communications skills to work independently and collaboratively within an organization to promote the goals and objectives of the work unit.
- Recognize how to facilitate successful completion of technical projects.
- Demonstrate competency in using technical tools, technology, methods, and processes.
- Recognize professional and ethical behavior.
- Apply problem solving skills to technical problems.
Numerous federal government and Department of Defense administrative/business, contracting, administrative assistant and information technology positions will require a bachelor’s degree, including 24 credit hours in business administration.
