The curriculum includes technical courses in management, courses in related areas, general education and electives. Instruction consists of both the theoretical concepts and practical applications needed for future success in management.

Tech Prep students may be eligible to earn credit for work completed in high school under existing articulation agreements. Students are encouraged to work with their advisors to avoid duplication of course work completed in high school. Students wishing to graduate with all Tech Prep competencies should select MKT 228 as a technical elective. Students planning to transfer to a baccalaureate program are urged to consider the Business Administration Program to earn an associate of arts and sciences degree.
