The one-year Business Technology Intermediate Technical
Certificate option helps prepare students for entry-level business
positions. Students learn basic management, marketing, sales,
customer service, business math, and communications skills. The
Intermediate Technical Certificate is an ideal option for students
interested in obtaining their education within a one-year time
frame.
Whether the Business Technologies student chooses an Associate
of Applied Science Degree, Advanced Technical Certificate, or
an Intermediate Technical Certificate, the exciting career field of
business requires strong personal motivation and dedication to
developing skills. If Business Technology students are employed
while pursuing their education, they often find opportunities to
apply newly-learned skills. When possible, courses are offered
on weekday mornings in order to provide the students with the
afternoons for homework, employment, and other activities.
Intended Learning Outcomes
The intended learning outcomes for the Associate of Applied
Science Degree in Marketing and Management are:
• Demonstrate the ability to apply fundamental marketing
principles related to product development, pricing, distribution,
and promotion concepts
• Perform leadership and management functions by creating
plans; organizing resources; leading teams; and controlling
processes
• Communicate effectively and confidently using both written
and verbal formats and present to a variety of audiences
• Demonstrate the ability to manage the human resource

• Record and report fundamental accounting transactions and

• Identify and utilize entrepreneurial skills to create business

• Solve problems by utilizing critical thinking, analytical, and

The Advanced Technical Certificate option focuses on the first
four learning outcomes, while the Intermediate Technical
Certificate option focuses on the first three.

A Business Technology student can expect to spend
approximately $1,100 on books and supplies for the one-year
