Program Description
The Certificate of Proficiency in Management Essentials provides the unique skills needed for a student to begin in an entry level position in a business and quickly move into a supervisory or management role.

Career Opportunities
Business managers often work very closely with business owners to monitor day-to-day business activities, assist with marketing the business and to hire, motivate and manage staff. Effective managers are equipped with the knowledge, skills and abilities necessary to drive a business to success and profit with minimal resources and under the direction of the owner. For complete competence in Business Management, these courses should be complemented with other skill building courses. This Certificate of Proficiency may be used as a stackable credential for other Business AS or AAS degrees.

The certificate is financial aid eligible, if you plan to stack it with other certificates, which will lead to a Certificate of Completion or AAS degree.
