CURRICULUM GUIDE

Associate in Business Degree

Curriculum Code: 0245  (Effective Fall 2003 - Summer 2008)

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 Course Descriptions or Course Offerings for course
prerequisite information.  See the Assessment and Placement Testing section
