The Business & Economics Department offers five concentrations within the B.A. degree in business: accounting, hospitality and tourism, management, marketing, and sport management. Through coursework and internships with businesses and organizations, students gain skills and knowledge needed to succeed as owners and leaders in business and finance. Coursework and practicums focus on planning, organizational structure, leadership, human resources, marketing and financial management.
Also available is a two-year (A.S.) degree in management; a minor in business and economics; and three certificate programs: accounting, nonprofit management and small business management.
Masters of Business Administration Articulation Agreement between Johnson State College & Clarkson University
Johnson State College students who plan their undergraduate program carefully are able to earn their Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York, in only one year. If JSC students include the courses that serve as a foundation for the M.B.A. program, they are able to eliminate the need for up to one year of Clarkson’s two-year program. In this way, a student could earn both an undergraduate degree from Johnson State College and an M.B.A. from Clarkson in just five years.
