Business Technology and Management

Graduates of this program enjoy a wide range of career options in business, industry, government, and public institutions. They may be office managers; staff accountants; accounting specialists; marketing and communication coordinators; sales and customer service managers; project managers; or small business owners. As an alternative to immediate employment, graduates may choose to enroll in the bachelor’s degree program at Vermont Tech or they may transfer to a bachelor’s degree program elsewhere with majors such as marketing or accounting.

     Highlights of the program include a formal business dinner where students dress in professional attire and learn the rules of formal dining.  Students also learn resumé writing and job interview skills and attend a “mocktail” reception and interview. Seniors complete a capstone project which includes a team oral presentation judged by professionals from business and industry. 

    Students with an Associate of Applied Science in Business Technology and Management will be able to:
  • Complete the steps of the accounting cycle, including processing and recording typical cash receipts, cash payments, sales, vendor, and payroll transactions; prepare and interpret financial statements for service and merchandising businesses on an accrual basis; and understand module integrated accounting software and use Peachtree software to record and process typical transactions and prepare financial statements
  • Use Microsoft’s Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access to create business documents; use Microsoft Publisher to design and develop newsletters, brochures, and other promotional materials. Students will be introduced to additional document and communication collaboration systems
  • Write business letters, memos, email messages, instant messages, and blog posts; create reports using accurate research methods and citations; and develop and deliver an effective oral presentation
  • Understand the psychology of face-to-face communication and the role of non-verbal communication; demonstrate successful team skills, effective listening, and professional behavior; effectively utilize resume-writing, interviewing, and job-seeking skills to advance their career goals
  • Understand the key characteristics and terminology of the business disciplines of management, human resources, marketing, and finance
     The normal number of credits required for a degree is 64.
