Business Administration

Program Description

The Business Administration program is perfect for students with the expectation of entering a baccalaureate college or for students who plan to earn a two-year associate degree in one of these concentrations: Accounting, Marketing, and/or Management.

Accounting

Professionals working in accounting and business administration must be able to process and accurately interpret large volumes of financial information. Lake Region State College's Accounting and Business Administration program combines the two closely linked fields to provide students with a broad understanding of finance, management and marketing. This curriculum is designed for students who plan to earn a two-year degree and enter the workforce, or who plan to work toward a baccalaureate degree in business administration or accounting. It provides the broad background required, as well as the beginning courses in the specialty.

Marketing

You can work almost anywhere with a marketing degree. Nearly every type of business or industry utilizes marketing professionals in some way. Job options for marketing degree holders include careers in advertising, brand management, market research, and public relations. 

Be an account executive, advertising assistant, media specialists or work in public relations. 

Most of the people who work in the marketing field have at least an associate degree. In some cases, work experience can be substituted for a degree. However, it can be difficult to get your foot in the door, even with entry-level jobs, without some type of degree or certificate. A bachelor degree can lead to higher paying jobs with more responsibility, such as marketing manager.

Management

A degree in management prepares graduates to work in various fields, such as advertising, marketing, human resources and finance. Prepare for an entry-level supervisory-potential position in sales, finance, human resources, project management, and more.
