Study Group of students working on a project

Take Charge of your Life: The Business programs at Leeward CC can be the place for you to learn new skills, develop a career plan, and take the first steps in a new direction! We offer four programs of study, each with short-term certificates that can be earned in 6 to 12 months, as well as degree programs that can be earned in 18 to 24 months.

Each course of study requires general business and liberal arts classes in addition to specialized courses specific to the program of study. Upon graduation you will have the training to start an entry-level position or transfer to a four-year university to earn a Bachelor’s degree.
