Program Overview

Business functions and operations require professionals who have a solid foundation on the principles and foundations of business environments in order to facilitate the business process. Businesses need people who understand marketing, accounting, and management with a broad background with training and experience required for the positions that utilize those responsibilities. For that, managers must have an education in business and the necessary components of the business process. 

Saint Mary of the Woods College offers an Associate degree in General Business for students who are interested in knowledge and developing the skills necessary to operate and to administrate a business. The degree is intended to be an introductory program to familiarize students with the classes necessary for the foundations for business. Students will take classes in liberal arts general studies to prepare them as well-rounded inpiduals, along with courses and electives necessary to prepare students for business. 

While an Associate degree in Business does prepare students for entry-level careers in operations or management, students should consider the benefits of completing a four-year Bachelor's degree program in addition to completing their Associate degree. 

As part of the program, students will be required to take their general education requirements, history, natural sciences, English, mathematics, and other electives and they will take their general business credits with classes such as principles of accounting, macroeconomics, microeconomics, principles of management, principles of marketing, managerial communications, business law and business finance.
