Business Technology Specialization, A.A.S.

NIACC’s Business Technology Specialization Degree is designed for students who are interested in developing a solid foundation in business and have a keen interest in computers. Students will prepare themselves for the continually changing marketplace by learning both “job getting” and “job keeping” skills. This program provides students  with a real “competitive advantage” when pursuing employment.

Career Opportunities

Support staff in Accounting, Help Desk, Information Systems Technology, Management Information Systems, Personal Computer Hardware and/or Software, and Web Design.

For specific information, contact the NIACC Business Division.

Upon successful completion of the Business Technology curriculum with a grade point average of 2.00 (C) or higher, the student is awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree. Students who know they wish to pursue a four-year degree and want to meet general education requirements of transfer institutions should pursue the A.A. degree. This will necessitate a slightly different curriculum.

Business Internships

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Talk to the Business Internship Coordinator or your Counselor to decide when in your college career you should participate in an internship.
  2. Enroll in and pass Workplace Professionalism (BUS 162 ).
    • Workplace Professionalism is a 3 s.h. course that is a prerequisite to Business Internships ~ it can be taken at any time prior to a Business Internship.
  3. Upon passing Workplace Professionalism, the student is eligible for a Business Internship (BUS 225 ).
    • Students may register for a Business Internship only when they have located, secured and have had the internship site approved with the Business Internship Coordinator.
    • Business Internship credit ranges from 1 s.h. to 5 s.h. ~ this must be determined prior to registering for the course.

All students are highly encouraged to participate in a Business Internship before graduating.
