This program is offered at Clark State's Beavercreek, Bellefontaine, Online and Springfield locations.

The Management curriculum provides a well-rounded education consisting of basic courses in accounting, information technology, economics, finance, business law, management, marketing, and operations.  The associate degree in Management provides students with knowledge and skills for managing people, finances, and operations.

The program schedule that follows is designed for full-time students who have completed all prerequisites and who have no college preparatory recommendations. Many individuals, especially part-time students and those taking college preparatory courses, will require additional semesters of study. Students should consult their academic advisors for help in planning their schedules.

Students with significant business experience, where expertise equals or exceeds the outcomes of a particular course(s), are offered two options for earning experiential credit. Proficiency exams are available for selected courses. Other courses may allow a student to potentially earn credit through a portfolio presentation.

Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of an Associate of Applied Business degree in Management, a graduate will be able to do the following:

  • Analyze quantitative data.
  • Apply basic business and management concepts, skills, and tools.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of global business trends.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of social responsibility trends, ethical issues, and legal considerations.
  • Effectively use communications and human relations knowledge and skills.
  • Effectively use information technology skills in the business environment.

Degree Availability
The Management program is available during the day and the evening at the Brinkman Center, the Greene Center, Ohio Hi-Point, and online. Students should consult with an advisor for the recommended sequencing of courses.

Transfer Options

Students enrolled in Associate of Applied Business degree programs are preparing for employment upon graduation from the program. However, at some point many of these students are also interested in completing a bachelor's degree. A number of colleges or universities have designed bachelor's completion programs designed for students completing applied degrees. See the Transfer section of the catalog for more information.

A complete listing of humanities and social science electives is available in the College Catalog.
