Program Details

Ocean County College offers an online Small Business Management Certificate of Proficiency Program which is designed to prepare students for ownership and operation of a small enterprise.  Course work stresses the role of the entrepreneur.  

Ocean County College offers a variety of engaging and professionally insightful online courses that can be taken as part of a complete degree program, or on an individual class-by-class basis.  These comprehensive educational programs are designed for students of any age.  Daily schedules make regular campus visits difficult for many busy individuals; therefore, Ocean County College offers the easily accessible e-learning environment.  This innovative platform allows individuals to take charge of their schedule and participation through an integration of communication services in an easy-to-use software system.  The online courses follow the same academic calendar as the on-campus classes.  

Online programs provide advising in areas such as course selection as well as transfer and career options.  The e-learning software is called the Pearson Learning Studio and the student works closely with an admissions specialist and/or an academic advisor to prepare a schedule that works well.  After individuals are admitted into the school, the student receives an acceptance package that informs how to login to Ocean Cruiser.  Ocean Cruiser allows access to WEBADVISOR so that searching for courses and registering is easy.  It is also recommended that upon successful registration, a Student Orientation Tutorial be viewed so that all questions and expectations for online courses are made clear.

The Small Business Management Certificate is a 36 credit hour program.  Required courses include: Introduction to Business Administration, Principles of Marketing, Small Business Management, Business Law I, Principles of Management, Integrated Office Software, English I, and either Fundamentals of Accounting or Principles of Accounting I.  Additionally, four courses are chosen from among the following: Principles of Accounting II, Business Communications, Business Law II, Principles of Advertising, Salesmanship, Interim Spreadsheet Applications, Database Operations with VBA, and Introduction to Statistics.
