Program Description:  The Marketing / Management (MM) Program at Aims Community College is a flexible, career oriented concentration that prepares students to compete for a better job or transfer to a bachelor’s degree-granting institution. Taught by skillful instructors with “real-world” experience, students may pursue an Associate’s Degree (63 credit hours), earn a vocation-specific Certificate (25 hours), or simply brush up on Management and Marketing issues and trends. In particular, MM courses engage such critical business functions as Professional Development, Strategic Planning, and Effective Communication with multiple stakeholders. The Program is relevant to the needs of the business and civic community in Weld County and northern Colorado. This means that students are likely to develop industry-specific perspective in (for example) Agriculture, Government, Oil and Gas, Hospitality and Social Services. And through constantly evolving Certificate programs, they may sharpen such broadly marketable skills as Retail Sales and Special Events Planning.

Marketing or Management General Education Requirements:  A minimum of 15 credit hours of General Education Courses are required with advisor’s approval. These courses may have prerequisites.
