Business Programs offers preparation for a wide range of careers in government, business, legal, and medical fields. Opportunities for employment, advancement, and responsibility exist in almost every business organization. Graduates are prepared to enter the workforce at various levels to include management, operations, and administrative support. Degrees in business are structured to include a broad general education, plus additional courses directed specifically toward areas of interest. These programs provide students with the specialized skills necessary for particular occupations. Students planning to complete their formal education in a two-year period are advised to pursue the Associate in Science degree. These degrees prepare students for a variety of business positions. The programs offered and course requirements are detailed later in this section. Course selection should be made with the help of a Business Programs Academic Advisor.
Students who are planning to attend college for specific training but are not interested in a degree program may pursue one of the certificate programs. Many certificate programs are designed to be completed in one year or less. Students may visit the department’s Web page at www.sfcollege.edu/Business to view degree, course information and online advisement materials.
