The Degree

Associate in Science (A.S.)

The Outlook

Employment among business managers is expected to grow at a faster rate than the average through 2020. Demand for the workers with business education and experience will grow as organizations continue to seek ways to improve efficiency and control costs.

The Program

If you've been thinking about starting or finishing a degree, you're probably also trying to figure out how to fit an education into your already busy life. With FLCC's innovative accelerated program in Business Administration, you'll take advantage of a schedule and course load that is designed for busy but motivated adults seeking to earn a versatile and in-demand college degree

Hybrid Courses: The Best of Both Worlds

Using hybrid learning - a combination of in-class and online learning - you can earn your degree in as little as two years by attending class just once a week. All face-to-face classes take place at the conveniently-located FLCC Victor Campus Center, and you'll also have the option of earning college credit online. Students in the accelerated program take two classes at a time for two seven-week "Minimesters" (or mini semesters) while also taking a full 15-week class online or in-person.

Make no mistake - this program is intense. While classes meet in-person only once per week, there is significant out-of-class time spent online and on-task. But if you are a goal-oriented adult who understands the important role a college degree plays in your future success, this could be just the program for you.
