Business and Office Professionals

Business and office professionals are always in demand. The Business and Office Professionals Division prepares students for careers in a variety of fields, including accounting, administrative support, business, entrepreneurship, marketing, management and project management. Options include, certificates, associate of science (AAS), and associate of arts (AA) degrees. Associate degrees are an ideal option for students who want to transfer to a four-year institution to earn a bachelor’s degree, as these degrees are accepted by all Washington state public universities and several private institutions. In many cases, students can earn degrees in multiple fields by taking crossover classes, if desired.
