The business world today is facing rapid changes, creating an increased demand for well-trained professionals to fill positions in all areas of the business industry. An Associate in Science degree builds a strong foundation of leadership and managerial skills to effectively manage people, organizations, and technology in the increasingly competitive global business world.
Northland's Business program is for students intending to seek employment after graduation and for those planning to continue their studies at a four-year college or university. In addition to established articulation agreements, this program meets the requirements of the Minnesota State Business Transfer Pathway and transfers to any Minnesota State University.
