New jobs in business are being created all the time. People with broad-based business training will have many career doors open to them.
SCC's Business Administration programs begin with the basics. There are general education courses in communication, humanities, social sciences, mathematics, and science. There are basic business courses to develop knowledge and skills in accounting, economics, finance, marketing, and management. There are also advanced courses in each of these areas. This extensive business education will broaden horizons, encourage maturity, and enable you to handle unique situations as they arise in your career.
Students who enroll in Business Administration programs at St. Charles Community College may complete the first two years of work toward a bachelor's degree at a four-year college or university, a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree, or a one-year Certificate of Achievement.
