An Associate Degree in Business at SIC qualifies you for entry-level employment in departments such as accounting, human resources, finance, or marketing and advertising. Quicker options include a nine-month accounting or business management certificate.
If you are interested in continuing your education beyond an associate degree, you will leave SIC prepared for that next step with classes that transfer. Take classes on campus or online.
