The Business Administration curriculum introduces students to the free enterprise system. It offers a fundamental knowledge of business functions and processes and an understanding of business organization and operation in today's global economy. Coursework includes business concepts such as accounting, business law, economics, management, and marketing. Skills related to the application of these concepts are developed through the study of computer literacy, communication, team-building, and decision-making.
As they develop these skills, students build a solid foundation for lifelong learning. Graduates are prepared for employment opportunities in business and industry, financial institutions, and government agencies.
Business Administration students are eligible for Work-Based Learning, which provides an opportunity for them to build their resume, apply classroom instruction in the workplace and develop employability and technical skills through real-life work experiences.
Students also can take business classes in Wake Tech's Study Abroad program. For example, you can fulfill credits for management or accounting while spending 10 days in Salzburg, Austria.
After earning an AAS degree at Wake Tech, students can take advantage of agreements the college has with four-year universities to transfer their credits toward a bachelor's degree.
