A. Graduates from a two-year business management program can prepare for careers in corporate offices, human resources departments, marketing, retail, management positions in various fields such as restaurants or hospitality, and more.

Q. Is an associate degree worth it?

A. Furthering your education with an associate or bachelor’s degree in any field can give you an advantage when applying to the open positions you’re qualified for, as well as increasing your earning potential. On average, someone with a bachelor’s degree in business can earn up to $11,000 more than with an associate degree, while someone with an associate degree earns around $3,000 more than someone with only a high school diploma.

Q. What is the average salary for someone with an associate in business management?

A. While not always a rule, generally the higher level of education you achieve the higher your earning potential can go. Standard salary can vary based on experience, the company you work for, or the area you live in, but a graduate with a bachelor’s in business management can earn an average of $61,000 per year.

Q. How long does it take to earn an A.S. business management degree?

A. An online business management degree with Penn Foster College is self-paced and can be completed around your schedule, with no set start dates or exam deadlines. However, on average, most students complete the associate degree within a period of two years and a bachelor’s degree in a period of four years.

Q. Why should I study business management?

A. Business management skills are relevant to most industries and positions, whether you’re working in a creative role, a hospitality role, or something entirely different. From leadership skills to general education courses, students studying the subject can be considered well-rounded job applicants.

Q. Do credits from the associate degree transfer to the bachelor of business management degree?

A. Yes, they can! If you complete your online Penn Foster College Business Management Associate Degree and want to further your education with a bachelor’s, your completed coursework can be evaluated into the four-year degree program at Penn Foster so you don’t need to repeat any classes.
