Why study Business Management Technology?

Business technology is a program providing a broad foundational study of knowledge required for entry-level positions in business management. It includes a general education core and an introduction to the functional areas of business: management, marketing, accounting, and finance.

Graduates of this program receive an associate of applied business degree. Career programs are designed for students who plan an associate degree only or want to continue at the UC Blue Ash campus for a technical baccalaureate (BTAS program). Some courses will NOT transfer to UC Uptown campus programs.

Admission Requirements

This program is open to all students with a high school diploma or GED and the desire to succeed in college. Although admission is open, students accepted into the program must meet the academic standards of the program to advance to upper levels of study.
