AS General Business

Looking to build a strong business foundation, but working with limited time?

Get the business basics with our two-year Associate of Science in general business! Then, if you decide you would like a four-year degree, come back later and build on that foundation.


An associate’s degree in general business will start you on the pathway toward your business career! You’ll enjoy learning business basics in courses like Small Business Management, Principles of Accounting, and Macroeconomics. Earn your degree from professors who genuinely care about you and are willing to take the time to help you understand the concepts. You’ll build a unique, biblically-based and ethically strong business foundation since faith is integrated into the classroom on a daily basis through our “Scriptural Foundations of Business” series. You will have the opportunity to listen to alumni and other business professionals speak about their real-world experiences as part of our Excellence in Business Speaker series and our academic assemblies. Our associate’s degree will give you the education you need for a variety of business-related jobs.
