Business Department

The Business Department provides quality education and training that prepares the people of the CNMI for leadership and management careers in the private and public sectors, as well as providing the inspiration and academic foundation for successful entrepreneurship.

The Bachelors of Science Degree in Business Management and Concentration in Accounting balances the theoretical elements of an academic bachelor's degree with the highly practical elements of an applied business degree. The programs will provide students with knowledge, competency, and abilities in the areas of business, management, and accounting. Students will develop key skills that will allow them to use their critical thinking, problem solving, management, and accounting skills. Students will also understand the key requirements for professionalism and ethical standards in professional practice.

  2. an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree in Business Administration with an Emphasis in either Accounting, Business Management, or Computer Applications; or
  3. an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Hospitality Management.

The AA in Business degree is designed to prepare students for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program at a four-year college or university. The AAS degrees are designed to provide marketable job skills for students to qualify for promotions and careers in banks, hotels, communications companies, various government agencies, and in other business sectors. The AAS in Business Administration degree with an Emphasis in Business Management also provides particular training for students who would like to become entrepreneurs and start their own business.
