    University and 4-year college Schools of Business may offer Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees in fields such as business technology support and retail merchandising and management. However, the majority of programs in applied business technology are found at the community, technical and career college levels. At these institutions-some of which are devoted specifically to business--you can pursue a 2-year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree in business information technology, accounting, hospitality and tourism management, medical office administration and office management/ administrative assisting. Within the administrative assistant degrees you can further specialize in legal or medical office options. You can also take an Associate of Science (AS) in office management/ administrative assisting or Associate of Applied Business (AAB) in criminal justice or Associate in Specialized Business (ASB) in accounting management, fashion merchandising and more.

    Diplomas and certificates are also available in such areas as business information technology, business applications specialist, accounting technician or clerk, hotel marketing and sales, hospitality and tourism management, retail management, legal office systems, billing and claims analyst, medical receptionist and office assistant are also available. Certificate programs are generally for high school graduates who want to gain employable skills in a short period of time. Some certificate programs allow you to transfer into a 2-year associate's degree program.

    Applied business technology programs generally cover basic office skills that are applicable to a variety of potential careers. Required courses within any of these programs may include business office communications, administrative procedures, bookkeeping, keyboarding, computer applications, human/ public relations, business math, business English, and job search techniques. Programs designed for particular work environments (such as legal or medical offices) also include courses in specialized terminology, office practices and software. Programs in applied business technology at both community and career colleges are designed to make students job-ready, and schools often offer job placement assistance.
