Business Department

At CT State Community College, a business degree or certificate provides you with valuable knowledge and skills that give you the flexibility to work in a variety of positions across many industries. We offer associate’s degrees in accounting, business administration, business office technology, business studies, entrepreneurship, fashion merchandising, hotel management, management, marketing, public utility management, restaurant and food service management, and retail management. Certificates can be earned as a first step toward the A.S. or A.A. degree or as a credential to round out your skills for a promotion or a new job.

Computer Science has an impact on many tasks that are performed daily: from writing documents to organizing and analyzing data on a spreadsheet, to managing computer networks, creating a Web site or a mobile application, or utilizing system applications. Our Computer Science degree and certificate programs give you the opportunity to learn these technologies using a hands-on approach.

Your business and computer science studies at CT State will give you a foundation for transferring to four-year institutions. Several of our programs are offered fully online. Faculty advisors will work with you to develop a personal plan of study to meet your personal and academic goals.
