Purpose: With the constant development of business and industry in Virginia, there is a demand for qualified personnel to assist in this economic growth. The program leading to an Associate of Applied Science Degree with a major in Business Management is designed for persons who seek employment immediately upon completion of the program. Both persons seeking their first job in a business and those seeking promotion will benefit from the program.

Admission Information: In addition to the general admission requirements established for the College, students whose placement test scores indicate the need to increase their level of proficiency in reading, writing and/or mathematics will be required to take appropriate developmental courses. Enrolling in developmental courses may increase the length of time necessary for completing the chosen course or program of study, but will enhance the student’s preparation for college-level coursework and increase the chances for successful attainment of academic, occupational and personal goals.

Admission Requirements: Students enrolled in prerequisite courses beyond the first semester should anticipate enrolling in summer session classes to complete the required courses by the end of the second school year. Normally, students enrolled in two or more developmental classes need three years to complete the degree requirements.
