Business Administration (A.A.S.)


Program Description
Erie Community College recognizes the need to prepare its students for an ever-changing job market. An Associate in Applied Science degree is a significant first step in securing the knowledge and skills necessary for employment or continued education in such a dynamic environment. We offer contemporary subject matter, including state-of-the-art computer training, and encourage our students to view education as a lifelong process.

The objectives of the Business Administration Department are threefold: to prepare students for responsible entry-level employment in the business arena immediately following graduation; to provide a quality education for students interested in transferring to a four-year institution for bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degrees; and to provide continuing education opportunities for those already working in business and industry.

The comprehensive nature of this program prepares students for a variety of employment opportunities. Business Administration students take a core of business subjects and then choose four business electives. These electives allow students flexibility in exploring particular areas of interest. In addition, students take a variety of liberal arts, math and science courses. The degree can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis, during the day or evening.

Graduates of the program are qualified for entry-level managerial positions, such as accounting clerk, auditor's assistant, sales and office manager, and administrative assistant.
