Business Programs

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.


Common Classes for Business Division Associate’s Degrees
If you’re interested in pursuing a business degree, but are undecided on a specific program, such as accounting, business technology or management, you can begin your degree work by taking the Common Courses listed below. All these courses are required for an Associate degree in each of the three business programs.
