The Business and Office Occupation programs provide students with the knowledge and skills they need for careers in fields such as accounting, finance, marketing, management and sales. The Business Department at Southwestern Oregon Community College offers two types of degrees.
The Associate of Science Oregon Transfer in Business degree is designed to provide the student with the first two years of a four-year degree. After completion of the first two years, a student transfers to a four-year institution.
The Associate of Applied Science is designed for the student who wants to be employed in two years and does not intend to transfer to a four-year institution. Southwestern also offers several certificates for students who need specific skills to enter the workforce.
