  • Accounting Essentials
  • Principles of Marketing
  • Managerial Strategies
  • Customer Service
  • Human Resource Management

With the extra training, graduates of our business administration AAS program have gone on to work as bookkeepers, accounting assistants, and human resource assistant managers.

Why Enroll in an Online Business School?

Earning a business certificate or degree is the first step to starting a rewarding, entry-level career in business. This versatile and in-demand career field helps put your passion to work.

With the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimating a 5% job growth through 2029, it’s clear that enrolling in a business program can open several new career doors.1

Here are just three other reasons why business might be the right field for you!

1) You’ll Learn Transferable Skills

An online business program teaches you skills that can be carried over into nearly any aspect of your professional life. On top of the hard skills taught, you’ll gain and/or improve your soft skills.

Soft skills are achieved by taking smaller steps and engaging in self-reflection. They often relate to our interactions with colleagues or clients/customers.

Some of the soft skills you’ll learn in a business program could include:

  • Presentation/public speaking
  • Accepting feedback
  • Logical thinking
  • Problem-solving
  • Leadership

2) There’s Diversity Within the Field

Earning a certificate or degree in business provides access to many opportunities. With these qualifications under your belt, you can work in any number of professional settings. Some potential career paths this program could lead you toward include:

  • Word processor
  • Typist
  • Receptionist
  • Data entry operator
  • Executive assistant

3) You Can Broaden Your Horizons

Getting started is always the most difficult step, especially when it comes to education. Earning a business certificate is a simple way to ease into the career-training mindset.

Having the opportunity to study at home also helps. You can attend live lectures or view recorded lectures, giving you the flexibility to perform coursework when it fits with your schedule while still adhering to deadlines.

Once you earn your certificate, students can enroll in our business degree program. This may help further broaden your career horizons and opportunities.

When you’re ready to start your new entry-level position, our team of experts is here to help in more ways than one.
