The spring semester is over, and summer has arrived. If you’re like many students, you may want to spend a portion of the season getting ahead on your college degree.
We recently offered some tips on general education courses to take over summer break if you are looking for ones that students are often able to complete in a quicker time frame. But what if you really mean business and are looking for courses that fit into a business degree plan?
We’ve got you covered.
Here are a few of the courses StraighterLine offers that should fit into your business degree:
This popular course fits into many degree plans at StraighterLine’s 80+ partner colleges and covers many concepts, principles, and operations of the private enterprise system. The course also discusses the functions of modern business management, marketing, as well as ethics and social responsibility. You’ll learn about human resource management and how employers can motivate their employees, along with bookkeeping, accounting, financial management, and financial statements.
If you want to take a deeper dive into the world of business ethics, this might be the course for you. You’ll learn about philosophy as well as business as you explore a wide array of ethical issues arising in contemporary business life. Major theoretical perspectives and concepts are presented, including ethical relativism, utilitarianism, and deontology. Employee issues and responsibilities, leadership and decision-making, morality, diversity, discrimination, and ethics in marketing and advertising are just some of the topics you’ll learn about in this course.
In addition to Accounting I and Accounting II, we offer a comprehensive Financial Accounting course that is popular among business majors. You’ll explore not only basic accounting concepts but also the principles of accrual and deferral accounting, the proper use of debits, credits, and fiscal year-end procedures. The course also examines merchandising transactions, inventory costing and valuation, cash management, and counts receivable.
This is just a small selection of the many business-related courses we offer, so be sure to check out the full list if your goal is to earn a business degree! From Business Law to Organizational Behavior, Personal Finance to Microeconomics, we’ve got you covered if you mean business this summer. Most of these fully online courses are just $49, plus a monthly membership fee of $99. That’s priced lower than most community colleges, plus you complete these self-paced courses on your own schedule. We can help you get your degree--in less time, with less stress, and for less money.
