Seeking entrepreneurial spirits
Business Management Program
The Associate of Applied Science in Business Management degree program equips graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to enter the contemporary world of business management. The associate’s degree program provides knowledge and skills which can lead to opportunities for promotion for those currently working as managers.
The curriculum reaches this objective through coursework in management principles, technical business procedures, computer operations, and general education. The program prepares the graduate to seek a variety of entry-level management positions.
A manager oversees all of the daily tasks in their department or organization. They are often in charge of hiring and training new staff members and coaching, disciplining, or firing existing employees. They act as a liaison between the senior management and the employees and situations in their department or location. There are a variety of types of managers that are usually titled based on what or whom they manage. For example, there are project managers, store managers, marketing managers, product managers, etc.
At the end of the Business Management program, all students will complete a capstone experience. This is a culminating project that showcases both the academic and intellectual growth and accomplishments for each student. In the Ross Business Management program capstone experience, each student will select a business topic and then research and write a comprehensive paper about the topic before presenting it to the class.
I came to Ross to further my education for a reliable career, and I've gained much more than that. My instructors have helped me become much more than I thought was possible.Haley Miller Graduate Medical Assistant student at Kentwood, MI campus Graduation: May 22, 2019
The reason I chose to go to Ross is because I wanted to learn with a hands-on approach and in a comfortable environment. Having the option to go to night class was perfect for my busy schedule. The instructors were always there to help me if I had any problems, in or out of class. Everyone was always friendly and willing to help. I felt very confident going for my externship because what you learn in class transfers really well out in the field. Thanks to Ross, I no longer feel like I'm stuck in a job I don't like, but rather, I am happy in a career.Amanda Frydrych Graduate Medical Insurance Billing and Office Administration student at Brighton, MI campus Graduation: December 4, 2019
