Strong businesses are the lifeblood of any healthy economy. Entrepreneurs and employees with a solid understanding of business principles, digital technology, and interpersonal (soft) skills are more successful now than ever. Our Business Administration program will allow you to develop your creativity and talents in leadership, marketing, management, human resources, accounting, and technology.

The Business Administration program provides a solid foundation of principles designed to prepare individuals for the business world. The program offers practical, marketable skills while also developing an understanding of business theory. The curriculum is perfectly designed to enhance one’s skills to enter or advance within his/her career or for the individual who is interested in exploring his/her entrepreneurial spirit. Besides providing training for employment, the program prepares students to continue their education at a four-year college or university. Transfer agreements with several colleges and universities ensure that graduates can transfer, as an advanced student, into a four-year program.

“When I entered KVCC’s Business program, I was not sure what ‘business’ was even about. Now I want to learn even more. The world is complicated and interesting, and business is everywhere. I plan to get my 4-year degree next, and then I will have the knowledge to open my own business with confidence.”
—KVCC Business Student
