+ Business Applications SpecialistTeresa A. Marano, Ph.D., program director
The one-year business applications certificate prepares students for business positions working with software applications. Students receive the necessary skills for using word processing, spreadsheet, database, desktop publishing, and presentation software within the business environment. In addition, students acquire the written and oral communications skills needed in business.
The program is arranged so that credits received in a one-year program may be transferred if a student decides to pursue a two-year degree in an Associate of Technical Studies or an Associate of Arts degree. To receive the business applications specialist certificate, the student must have at least a 2.0 grade point average for all work attempted.
