Business, Entrepreneurialism, and Management
Because our global economy starts with the small business on the corner and extends to the world’s most valuable companies, we’ve designed our business pathway to give you the knowledge and experience you need to be an economic and social leader at every level of your career.
The Business Field of Interest is designed for students who have an interest in business management and administration, finance, hospitality and tourism, culinary arts, and marketing. Programs and majors in this pathway lead to careers in accounting, management, sales, marketing, human resources, owning and operating a small business, and customer service.
If you are ready to find the Business, Entrepreneurialism, and Management program that is right for you, select the option below that meets your current goals.
Note: If a degree or certificate is listed more than once, refer to the most recent Effective Date for current course requirements. Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.
University Transfer and Associate Degrees
With the university transfer option, you can complete most of your general education coursework at the Maricopa Community Colleges and have guaranteed acceptance to one of our over 40 university and college partners to complete your Bachelor degree.
There are other Associate of Applied Science degrees that have been designed to provide seamless transfer into a bachelor program, but acceptance is not guaranteed. For more information, see the Get an Associate Degree option below. The Associate degrees in this list give you the opportunity for an in-depth study of your chosen field. If you decide to move on to a four-year degree after graduation, you will need to work with an advisor to confirm which classes will transfer, and acceptance is not guaranteed.
Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.
A Certificate prepares you for entry-level work in your chosen field and requires fewer classes than the Associate degree or university transfer options. There are several types of certificates available, including career, trade, and academic certificates.
Credits earned in a certificate program can often be used toward an Associate degree. For more information, speak with an advisor.
