  • WELCOME

    Professor Richard S. Hyland, Curriculum Chair

    Dear Business Student:

    Welcome to the Department of Business at Westchester Community College.

    Getting started in college can be a daunting experience -

    there are forms to complete, deadlines to meet, books to

    buy, and offices to visit. This booklet will help you

    navigate this process.

    The Business Department at Westchester Community

    College has a long and proud tradition of preparing

    students to transition directly into industry and transferring

    to four-year institutions. Many of our alumni have gone on

    to the best colleges and universities in the world, and some

    are now high-level leaders in their respective fields. You

    are about to join these illustrious alumni as you begin your

    journey at WCC.

    It is very important that you make connections to faculty, staff, and administrators as soon and

    as often as possible. You will find that our team is dedicated to your success. We are all here

    to help you, but you must be proactive by reaching out for assistance.

    On behalf of my colleagues, we wish you well as you make your way through your studies at

    WCC. Do not hesitate to contact me, or any of your other Business professors, if you have

    questions.

    Sincerely,

    Professor Richard S. Hyland

    Business Management Curriculum Chair

  • PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

    Business Management, AS

    Goal

    “The goal of the Business Management A.S. program is to equip students with the

    competencies required to succeed in a rigorous bachelor’s degree program”

    Description

    The program parallels the first two years of the bachelor’s degree requirements at most four-year

    colleges and universities. Transfer agreements between Westchester Community College and four-year

    colleges in the region assure that, with careful planning, A.S. graduates may transfer most of their

    credits when they enter the same curriculum at those institutions.

    Today’s managers must be prepared to enter into a workplace that is increasingly globalized,

    interconnected, and multicultural. The Business Management degree at Westchester Community

    College also prepares students for such challenges and opportunities. The program will teach students

    how to:

    Analyze data to solve complex challenges

    Communicate effectively

    Engage in business practices ethically

    Manage in increasingly multicultural settings

    Market products to ever changing consumer tastes

    Learning Outcomes

    The program will equip students with the Knowledge, Skills, and Mindset required for success in

    Business. Upon completion of this program, student will be able to demonstrate:

    1. An understanding of the functions of Management.

    2. The ability to analyze data.

    3. The ability to apply Management models and theories to specific scenarios.

  • TRANSFER SERVICES

    Many of our students have gone on to excel at the most selective colleges and

    universities in the United States. The Office of Transfer Services provides a wide range

    of services and information on the various opportunities available at four-year

    institutions to maximize your transfer potential. Services include one-on-one transfer

    counseling, fall and spring transfer fairs, workshops, on-site admission days, and four-

    year college reps on campus throughout the year.

    Students also have access to CollegeFish.org, an online tool to help community college

    students meet their goal of completing an Associate degree and successfully transferring

    to a four-year institution. Each college and university has its own criteria for

    acceptance, so you should do your homework as soon as you have decided on a transfer

    school and then set up an appointment with a Business Professor to develop a strategy

    that will maximize your chances of being accepted.

  • ALUMNI

    “It was extremely helpful to have business

    professors that were not only able to relay

    information in a clear and concise manner, but also

    possess real world business experience themselves.

    Marc R. Ruppenstein (WCC ‘10; Columbia ‘12)

    “WCC was a key starting point in my education. Attending

    WCC was by far the best decision I made as a high school

    senior who just arrived in the U.S.A. It allowed me to gain

    the necessary skills and knowledge to transfer to a well-

    known university and start my career in finance.”

    Omari Byfield (WCC ‘12)

    “The Business Program at WCC prepared me well

    for my transition to Columbia University. The

    Professors have in-depth knowledge of their field

    and truly support students all the way. Working in

    a major Investment Bank today I am finding myself

    using skills that I acquired at WCC.”

    Anna Jeschke (WCC ‘09; Columbia ‘11)
