Message from the Curriculum Chair
One of the most challenging aspects of college is choosing a path. There seem to be so many options, especially in the Business field. At WCC we offer three transfer degrees in Business – Accounting, Management, and Marketing. That should help narrow your focus a bit.
Within the Management program you can select a concentration. This means that you can take two classes to get a “flavor” for that field of study. Currently we have several concentrations in Management, including Global Business, Human Resource Management, Sales Management, General Management, and a track for students who would like to transfer to a SUNY or CUNY school.
Whatever your future plans may be, we have a starting point for you. As soon as you are ready, contact me or one of our outstanding Business Professors to schedule an appointment. We are here to help.
You have made a good choice – now take advantage of what is in front of you!
I look forward to meeting you.
