Earn your associate of applied science degree online

You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students
Students in retail business management are prepared for merchandising and management careers in such retail enterprises as department and specialty stores, resident buying offices, chain organizations, and small businesses. The program includes an on-the-job work assignment in community department stores and other firms. This practical experience prepares graduates for initial positions as entry-level executives in the areas of buying, merchandising, and store operations. The Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree is a base for a business career upon graduation or continued education at a four-year institution.
