What Can You Do With A Business Degree?

Through our unique hands-on approach to business studies, students develop a basic knowledge of business needed for an entry-level administrative support or managerial position. Our associate degree also provides the groundwork to pursue continued studies at a four-year institution as a business major.

A business degree is one of the most sought-after degrees, preparing students for career opportunities in both the public and private sectors. From marketing and accounting to management and information technology, no other college in the country offers the depth of experience in teaching students with learning differences. Landmark College has a long and successful record of preparing students with learning differences to gain access to four-year degree programs and creating a foundation for a career in business.

Our goal is to prepare students to be independent thinkers with the skills necessary to analyze information to make sound decisions based on data and projections.

Upon completing the Associate of Arts Degree in Business Studies, a graduate will be able to:

1. Develop an understanding of business fundamentals.
2. Develop leadership skills.
3. Understand basic marketing theory.
