If you’ve always wanted to work in the fast-paced world of business, the Business Management Program at DACC can be 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 Management Program prepares you to assume those responsibilities.


Specialize in one of several elective tracks. These prepare students for work in fields as diverse as real estate, finance and banking, retail marketing, and general management. Students graduating with these specializations have gone on to work in organizations throughout the area, the state, and beyond. Courses are diverse. They include Introduction to Supervision, Business Law, Economics, Business English, Marketing, and Business Finance.

The opportunity to specialize in a specific business area is provided by the requirement that all students undertake 15 credits of elective courses, allowing students to concentrate on an area in which they have a career interest. Elective options include general management, real estate, retail marketing and sales, and finance and banking.
