Management

Purposeful know-how for effective leadership

The Management Program at ACC is designed to surround you with practical knowledge you can use. It's firmly based on the foundations of a successful business: financial management, personnel management, and marketing. Management means carrying out an organization's objectives and motivating workers, while possibly taking responsibility for areas like purchasing, hiring, training, and quality control. ACC's Associate of Applied Science degree in Management is for students interested in a two-year college program that includes individual management courses with the opportunity to study a specialized area of interest. Shorter, more focused certificate programs in Administrative Management, Management Specialties Leadership, and Small Business Management are also offered.

What skills can I gain?

Students gain expertise in the fundamentals of business, including business ethics, business law, economics, human resources, computing, marketing, accounting, and finance. The associate degree program includes a foundation of core academic classes such as mathematics and writing. The certificate programs are shorter and more focused and do not include general academic classes.

*Students who plan to pursue a bachelor's degree in business administration should consider ACC's Associate of Science in Business Administration.

How long will it take to earn a degree or certificate?

Students typically take at least two years to complete the associate degree. The certificates require at least one semester of study, though many students also work full time and decide to spread out their studies.

Where can I work with this education?

Virtually all organizations require skilled managers, including government agencies, private small businesses, manufacturers, retail stores, financial institutions, and schools, among many others.
