Business Administration Degree
We are the starting point for future business leaders.
Our program will give you the skills to be ready for tomorrow’s job-market challenges.
The Business Administration program at White Mountains Community College is meeting the challenge of today’s dynamic business and economic environment. We recognize that global outsourcing is hollowing out the structure of many medium to large businesses. Employment opportunities available to degree holders will vary based on past work experience. Exciting positions are available at many entry-levels. Positions include management, and involve skills in areas like human resources, leadership and administration. Some possible titles could include:
- Assistant manager
- Office assistant
- Sales assistant
- Marketing Assistant
- Administrative Assistant
In January 2014, payscale.com reported the median annual salary for those with this degree who had less than one year of experience in their chosen field was $38,710. With 5-9 years of experience, the median annual salary goes up to $44,781.
The coursework has been designed to satisfy the requirements of the first two years of a four-year business administration degree, as well as to give the students core competency in all of the general business disciplines. By completing our program, the students will gain knowledge in management, accounting, finance, strategy, economics, statistics, marketing, operations/project management, entrepreneurship, and computer applications. This core set of operational and strategic business skills is complimented with general education courses from science, from the social sciences, from the humanities, and with courses in English composition and oral communications. We also require students to complete a semester course in comprehensive presentation methods so that our future business leaders can effectively communicate ideas through speech and multimedia.
Our Business Administration program integrates the use of the most current information technology tools. All courses require the use of computer applications, including Word, Excel, Access and PowerPoint, and the use of electronic collaboration.
College students choosing Business Administration as a program and career have a number of doors open to them. According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics the job outlook projects a 15 percent increase in the number of jobs through 2020. Graduating students will have the choice of working in a variety of industries, depending on their interests. The work is diverse, the responsibilities exciting, and the opportunities can be limitless.
