Small Business Management Certificate


Return to: Programs of Study - listed by School

Total Number of Credits Required for Certificate: 36*


*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101  course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101  during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 37 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.

Program Outcomes:


Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:

  1. demonstrate mastery of the process and functions of management (planning, organizing, leading, staffing, and controlling) and the principles of managerial decision making through written assignments and in-class exercises designed to promote strategic thinking and analysis;
  2. review employee selection and training strategies and techniques;
  3. create, design, and deliver effective and well-organized oral and written presentations utilizing state-of-the-art technology; and
  4. analyze the relationship between human resource management issues in the workplace and changing ethical and legal issues and how these changing paradigms impact the human resource management of a culturally diverse workforce.

Program Description:


This program is designed to prepare students to own and operate a small business. As an integral part of the program, each student is required to develop a business plan which includes provisions for financing, site selection, marketing, budgeting, record keeping, physical facilities, incorporation, insurance, inventory control and possible franchising. All credits earned in the Certificate program may be applied toward the Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Management.

This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). The attainment of this accreditation certifies that the teaching and learning processes within the Business Studies Department meet the rigorous educational standards established by the ACBSP.
