Program Overview

Students interested developing their skills in business technology may wish to consider Leeward Community College’s Business Technology Academic Subject Certificate. This certificate program requires completion of 19 credits, and typically takes students approximately two semesters to complete. Students are able to create a schedule that is personalized in order to maintain current professional and familial responsibilities.

A diverse course list allows Leeward Community College students to be exposed to an array of business skills. Some of the courses include: Business Computer Systems, Introduction to Word Processing, Career Success, Professional Employment Preparation, Business Calculations, College Accounting, and Customer Service.

Students can expect to use these strong business skills to obtain entry-level jobs. Some students even use this degree as a precursor to a 4-year business degree. The skills students may develop while in this program will give them an outline of certain business technology subjects they may use in future careers. With this certificate, students will have specialized training in business, which may greatly enhance employment potential and admission into four-year business programs. Leeward Community College also states this may be a helpful certificate for those who are pursuing their Associate of Arts degree.

By selecting BUSN 123 (Word Processing for Business) instead of BUSN 121 (Introduction to Word Processing), and completing BUSN 170 (Records and Information Management), students also have the ability to earn the Certificate of Completion in Business Technology.

    School Overview

    The University of Hawai’i System first opened as a land grant institution called the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in Honolulu in 1907. By 1920, the school gained university status, changing its name to the University of Hawai’i. By the 1930s, UH began expanding its physical campus by adding other schools and awarding its first doctorate degree. World War II and the attack on Pearl Harbor halted growth for a short period. However, expansion resumed in the 1950s, as the university introduced the Hilo Branch and the Asian Theater program. Throughout the twentieth century, campuses were established on the various islands, and academic programs continued to develop. The main campus in Manoa is the largest and oldest of the college campuses and is a land grant, sea grant, and space grant research facility. 

    More than 600 degree programs are offered through the University of Hawai’i, including bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral, and graduate and professional certificates. Distance learning degrees extend from certificate and bachelor’s degrees to online master’s and doctorate programs.
