Automotive Service Management Degree
As America's automotive industry grows, so too do the number and size of dealerships. These businesses require individuals who possess strong management skills, coupled with a background in automotive technology. The Associate Degree Program in Automotive Service Management meets these needs.
Students enrolled in the program experience a common first year with the Automotive Technology curriculum, taking both automotive and general education courses. Upon successful completion of the core courses, students shift from the major technical courses to concentrate on business courses helpful in the management sector of the automotive industry. Graduates of the program have personal and business skills that enhance their effectiveness with customers, technicians, and co-workers.
Upon graduation, students have the skills required to secure positions as assistant service manager, parts and service consultant, service advisor, service manager, and general manager.
As part of program requirements, both degree and certificate students must take at least two Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) national certification exams each spring, usually administered in May. The cost of each exam is $108.
Students can expect to spend an additional $1300 to $2500 for tools, uniforms, and the ASE exams.
