Business and Management Department

Business and Management Group picture

The SCC Business and Management Department's philosophy is that graduating students should have the knowledge and skills needed to enter the job market, to upgrade for promotions, and/or to transfer to four-year colleges and universities.

Depending on your educational and career goals, you can choose from business, legal or transfer programs of study. Not only do our Business and Management students receive A.A. and A.A.S. degrees and certificates, but other vocational program students on campus take specific classes in our department to expand their business knowledge. Business is for everyone!

Department faculty care about the students we serve. We want our students to succeed and reach the goals that they have set for themselves. Check out our qualifications on our individual faculty pages! All of the Business and Management tenured faculty have Master's degrees; some have more than one Master's. Some have higher degrees; some have published. Most faculty have assumed leadership roles both on and off campus in various professional organizations. Our common denominator, however, is that we care about our students!

We encourage you to join us in the Business and Management Department.
