AAS - Business Management

Business Management

Business management is no longer a field just for people who desire to be managers. Organizations are giving all individuals within their structures more responsibility than before and requiring more knowledge of them.

Collin's Business Management degree provides students the ability to relate with others, the skills to work in teams, the knowledge to initiate change, and the experience to solve problems in the workplace. Topics include basic management philosophies and theories, organizational psychology, as well as, business strategy development, implementation and evaluation skills. This degree is also excellent for people who wish to major in another field but need business and management skills.

Through transfer agreements, students may earn their Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Business Management from Collin and transfer to numerous universities in Texas where Collin courses may be applied toward Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (BAAS) and Bachelor of Applied Technology (BAT) degrees.

Students planning to transfer to colleges or universities should check with Collin academic advisors prior to beginning this program to verify course transferability.
