The Business Administration Degree program provides the student with a broad base of knowledge to assume a wide variety of professional business positions in our ever-changing business environment. Strengths: NIACC’s Business Administration program is a dual-purpose program designed to give the student the option of obtaining employment upon graduation or transferring to a four-year institution.
Upon successful completion of the Business Administration curriculum with a grade point average of 2.00 (C) or higher, the student is awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree. Students who know they wish to pursue a four-year degree and want to meet general education requirements of transfer institutions should pursue the A.A. Degree. This will necessitate a slightly different curriculum.
Tuition is based on the number of credit hours and legal residence and is subject to change or modification.
Financial assistance is available in the form of grants, scholarships, loans, and part-time employment (work-study). Students apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Whether a business is not-for-profit, governmental, or an international corporation, it needs people with skills in business administration. All organizations offer careers that rely heavily on effective business management techniques, making business administration an excellent foundation.
Some of the occupational areas in which job opportunities may be found are:
- General Business (office, shipping, and receiving, quality control)
- Positions within industrial, wholesale or retail firms
