Business Administration A.A.S.

NYIT offers a two-year Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) in Business Administration for high school graduates or adult learners interested in exploring contemporary, evolving college life and/or want to return to college to retool their basic skills. Our A.A.S. program emphasizes learning goals focused on knowledge acquisition, contextual understanding, and application to practice. These features help to build skill sets that enable graduates of the two-year degree to either continue their academic progress by pursuing a four-year degree, or advance their professional goals in the business world.

A.A.S. Programmatic Learning Goals
They are the same as those for the B.S.B.A. program.

School of Management A.A.S. Assurance of Learning
Assurance of learning principles are identical to those in the B.S.B.A. program. However, the emphasis of exposure to learning goals in the A.A.S. program is primarily focused on knowledge, understanding, and when applicable, to application, with less emphasis placed on the upper categories of Bloom's Taxonomy involving analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.

Program Options
Students enrolled in the A.A.S. program must complete one of four track concentrations: accounting, finance, general management, and marketing. Specific learning goals for these areas are identical to the respective major-specific learning goals in the B.S.B.A. program.

School of Management A.A.S. Academic Policies and Standards
NYIT admission standards and other academic policies apply to the A.A.S. program. Graduates who earn an A.A.S. and choose to continue their studies toward the B.S.B.A. must comply with the academic policies relevant to that program.
