Will An Associate Degree in Business Help My Career?

Career Quest Learning Centers Associates Degree


How do you prove you’re qualified for a business career when you just don’t have much experience yet?




One way to demonstrate to your future employer that you possess the skills you need to do the job is to prove it on paper. An Associate Degree in Business Administration can help you do just that. It shows that you’ve taken and succeeded in the coursework that businesses consider must-haves. Some important topics you’ll cover as you pursue your Associate Degree include:


·         Business Fundamentals

·         Office Administration

·         Management Strategies

·         Computer Programs for Business

·         Payroll and Income Tax Accounting

·         Human Resources

·         Project Management

·         Marketing

·         Effective Business Communication


Your degree could open doors to a new career or help you advance in one you already have. For example, if you work in an office, becoming a Microsoft Office Specialist could increase the value you bring to your employer. Microsoft is everywhere! The more you know about the full suite, the more productive and efficient you could become. What employer wouldn’t want that?


Employees with Associate degrees also tend to fare better in the job market. More than half of millennials with a two year degree or at least some college feels that their training and education helped them get ahead in their jobs. Almost three-quarters have a career or a career-track job and 43 percent said their education was very useful in preparing them.1


Your degree also says a lot about your work ethic, desire to learn, and ability to accomplish what you set out to do. You’ve completed one degree. Will you go on to a next? An Associate degree can be a natural foundation for a Bachelor’s degree, or more.
