Associate of Applied Business - Business Management Technology

A manager is the glue that holds the organization together. With a basic knowledge of business and an understanding of how to administer the skills of others in the workplace, the manager brings together the various facets of an organization into a smoothly running whole.

Employment of salaried managers and administrators is expected to increase faster than the average for all occupations into the twenty-first century as business operations become more complex.
