Business Administration Degrees

The Business Administration Program prepares you for the challenges of the ever-changing business world. Specialized courses and liberal arts studies provide you with the foundation needed for careers in a field marked by rapid processing of information, constant change and increasing competition.

The Business Administration Associate of Applied Science degree (AAS) is offered for students planning to enter the business world in areas of office management, administrative assistants, customer service and quality control. An internship requirement helps students network with businesses.

If you plan to pursue a bachelor's degree, please refer to NMC's degree requirements for the Associate in Science and Arts degree (ASA). If you're interested in a bachelor's degree, you may also elect to stay in Traverse City and transfer to the NMC University Center.

Business Administration Online Degree

NMC offers an online alternative for students pursuing an Associate in Applied Science degree in Business Administration.

Students are strongly encouraged to meet with an academic advisor because not all classes are offered online every semester, and students must complete an internship and a science course with lab, which require on-site attendance.
