The college has rolled out the following three exciting concentrations with its business management and accounting program:
• Property Management;
• Retail Sales Management;
• Event Planning.
The focus of the property management emphasis is to train students in the area of personal property or fixed asset management in a variety of environments, including educational institutions, healthcare facilities, and private industries, as well as local, state, and federal government agencies.
Students enrolled in this program take courses such as Accounting Fundamentals, Computerized Accounting, Payroll Accounting, Property Management Fundamentals, Intermediate Property Management, and more.
The emphasis in retail sales management prepares graduates for entry-to mid-level positions in a retail environment. Retail salespersons assist customers at a retail store, conduct financial transactions with them, manage cash registers, take inventory, and arrange displays. Those who are hired for or elevated to assistant manager positions may be responsible for administrative tasks or supervising a team.
Courses in this program include Introduction to Retail Sales Management, Communication in Selling, Managing Retail Teams, Procurement, and Logistics and Merchandising, in addition to typical business-related topics like Accounting, Marketing, Business Law, Management Principles, etc.
The event planning emphasis is ideally suited for candidates who want to combine their creative streak with business knowledge to design, plan, organize, and manage events for private and corporate clients.
Students enrolled in this program are trained in all aspects of event management—from preparing cost estimates to negotiating contracts—through courses such as Fundamentals of Event and Meeting Planning, Event Marketing and Management, Special Events, Event Logistics, etc.
The AAS in business management and accounting degree is available online as well as on-ground, and can be completed in as few as 15 months on Stevens-Henager College’s flexible schedule, although the normal duration of the program is 20 months.
Interested candidates may begin the process of enrollment by scheduling a tour of the campus of their choice and meeting with a financial planner, who will help them understand the various sources of federal aid they may be eligible for.
