The General Business program at Northwest Technical College is designed to provide students with the fundamental training necessary for a rewarding career in today’s professional workplace. Students gain the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed as an employee, business owner or entrepreneur. Coursework provides a strong foundation in business skills, including effective communication practices, financial management and customer relations, as well as offering the opportunity to choose a subject for more in-depth study.

NTC offers a Business Foundations certificate and an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in Business for students who plan to seek immediate employment. Students completing the AAS choose two of five different areas in which to earn certificates as part of their coursework: Accounting, Administrative Business Specialist, Computer Support, Human Resources, Sales & Marketing, and Management & Entrepreneurship.
