Business & Marketing- Program Descriptions
Where students come FIRST!
Business & Marketing
If you’ve always wanted to work in the
fast-paced world of business, the Business Occupations Program
at DACC is your ticket to success. The need for supervisors and
managers in business organizations continues to grow with the
economy, and our students are filling those positions. The
experience and education you receive through the Business
Occupations Program prepare you to assume the responsibility of
supervising and managing business operations.
The Business Occupation Program, through a curriculum of practical training courses, general education courses, and selected elective classes that target a specific industry or business, prepares students for entry-level supervisory or management positions. Students take courses as diverse as Introduction to Supervision, Business Law, Economics, Computer Spreadsheet Applications, and Business Finance.
The program also includes fifteen credit hours of electives, allowing you to customize your course of study and concentrate in a particular instructional area. You may choose from four areas of emphasis: General Management, Real Estate, Retail Marketing and Merchandising, and Finance and Banking. Students can customize an option by seeking advising from a faculty member to plan a series of elective courses that match the students’ interest and career goals.
Graduates of the Business Occupations Program can apply most of their courses toward either of two bachelor’s degree programs at NMSU: agricultural economics and agricultural business, or applied studies (offered by the College of Extended Learning).
