Business Administration: Marketing
Kennebec Valley Community College offers an Associate in Applied Science degree in Business Administration with options in Accounting, Marketing/Management and Computer Systems Integration. The KVCC Business Administration programs are accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs.
The Marketing/Management option provides the student with the background necessary to work toward managerial positions in organizations operating in the marketing of a product or in a service capacity. Students will also have the opportunity to work collaboratively with students from the other business options in a simulated office environment to include the “Virtual Office” and incorporated internship program.
The mission of the Business Administration program is to help the student develop marketable business skills while still providing the broader courses necessary to produce an “educated person”. Instead of limiting the education to narrow, technical training, the business faculty will help the students develop tools to use the rest of their lives.
The Business Administration program is made up of three business-related options, as follows: Accounting, Marketing/Management and Computer Systems Integration. Students from all business options will have the opportunity to apply their skills in a theoretical business plan or in a live internship.
