Business Professional (Career Program), Associate in Applied Science
This career-oriented curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of those who wish to explore the various areas of business. This program may also be used to further the general and specialized skills of those already employed.
The curriculum is not designed with transfer as the desired objective. However, many courses in the program are accepted by baccalaureate-level colleges. Graduates have a fundamental knowledge of business principles, procedures and systems, and a broad background in theory and practice.
The Business Professional curriculum provides the opportunity for the student to earn college credits through cooperative education, a supervised off-campus work experience in a business environment. This program can be completed through a variety of methods, either in class, online or with hybrid courses, which combines in class and online course work.
The career possibilities with a Business Professional degree are numerous. Students are equipped for positions in management, accounting, marketing, finance, banking, insurance, sales, and international business, just to name a few. A student chooses how far they go, from clerk to CEO, or owning and operating their own business. Our Business Professional program at County College of Morris is the first step for a career in business. Our graduates have careers in bookkeeping, accounting, auditing, management, insurance, sales, retail, marketing, merchandising, advertising, banking, business information systems, finance, event planning, human resources, and real estate.
This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
Cooperative education experiences are facilitated through Career Services, with many companies residing in Morris County. These opportunities often lead to gratifying careers within participating companies after graduation.
In addition to the general scholarships available at the college, Alpha Beta Gamma, a business honor society, offers scholarships.
