What Will I Study?

At TMCC you can choose from two different Business degrees, or a certificate of achievement in Business.

The Associate of Arts (AA) Business Degree is the degree for you if you are interested in graduating from TMCC and pursuing a bachelor’s degree in business at a four-year accredited institution. If you graduate with this degree from TMCC you can transfer to UNR at junior status having completed the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in business. Within the program, you will explore a wide variety of opportunities in various business fields. The solid background in economics, statistics, and accounting is designed to provide skills required to pursue advanced degrees in any business major including accounting, economics, marketing, management or general business.

If you are more interested in learning the basics of business to get into a career quickly and do not plan to transfer your degree, the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Business Degree provides you with a strong foundation of business knowledge. It is a useful two-year degree that employers see as verification of your capabilities in the business area.

The certificate of achievement shows that you have applied yourself within the business discipline and have successfully completed a series of courses which makes you more marketable and appealing to employers.

TMCC provides Business courses reflecting leading-edge practices that you will need to know to be successful in the world of business. These courses include Business English, which encompasses the written skills necessary for basic business correspondence; Business Speech Communications which enhances listening and oral skills in the workplace; Introduction to Business, a course designed to give you a broad introduction to the principles, practices and functions of business and many more.
