A Business Associate degree can help you prepare for a wide range of positions as a business manager and administrator. Business administrators and managers combine finance with human resources, marketing and management to help businesses and companies run efficiently and succeed financially. Business management courses and business administration courses aim to help students develop an understanding of marketing, management, human resources and the role finance plays in each of these areas.

Human Resources in Business Administration & Management
Human resource departments and officials are responsible for a wide range of tasks dealing with personnel. Human resource officials hire qualified individuals and seek to maximize the skills of employees. Much of the work of human resource officials requires a strong understanding of financial principles. They must take into consideration a company's budget and business plan when hiring. Business management courses and business administration courses can help you gain an understanding of these principles and how they apply to a career in human resources.

Marketing in Business Administration & Management
Each business or company regardless of their size must market their product or service to be successful. Companies that rely on in-house marketing often look to business managers and business administrators with Associate degrees to help them create and meet marketing goals. Business management classes work to equip students with marketing tools to understand the market of a company and how to maximize its potential.

Business Management
Business managers, similar to other types of managers, focus on planning, organizing, directing and supervising a company or a section of a company. Business managers help organize business affairs to maximize their efficiency. A strong grasp of business and finance principles help business managers produce and review business plans and reports for their employers.

Successful business managers and administrators must combine finance with human resources, marketing and management to help companies succeed and grow. Business management courses and business administration courses help individuals better understand a company's market, assess their hiring practices and manage their business. Business management training may be just the edge you need to break into the exciting field of business management and administration.
