Do you see in yourself the sparks of entrepreneurship, and think you could be running your own company some day? Or do you think you have what it takes to be a capable business executive contributing to an organization s growth? Along with this fire in your belly, an associate degree in business can help give you the power to reach for your goals.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, those with an associate degree earned an average of $767 per week in 2010, as compared to the $626 earned by high school graduates*. More money is just one advantage of earning an associate degree in business. Studies show that you are also likely to have better employment opportunities, brighter growth prospects, and more confidence in your own decisions if you went to college.
After all, having ambition is great, but without the backing of proper education, it can get you only so far in life.
Most associate degrees in business will take about two years of coursework. Some business schools may have flexible schedules that allow students to finish their academic program in less than normal completion time, but this may mean more intensive coursework and fewer breaks.
