The business program at Allan Hancock College introduces students to how business operates and prepares them for positions in the business world.  Students also learn why many business graduates choose to start their own businesses rather than work for others.

The business curriculum explores business strategies that allow managers to compete in today’s dynamic, global marketplace. Business in the 21st century requires that managers connect people, technology, and ethics in order to form strong partnerships with customers, employees, and other organizational stakeholders.

"You get to work on the different situations of a company: how to manage the balance sheet, the income statements, stockholders equity. I want to get to a place where I would improve myself in a better life and not just apply at any job. By taking this class it will help me to understand a foundation to the job that I will be working in. It's really fun."
