The business program at Allan Hancock College introduces students to how business operates and prepares them for positions in the business world.  Students also learn why many business graduates choose to start their own businesses rather than work for others.

The business curriculum explores business strategies that allow managers to compete in today’s dynamic, global marketplace. Business in the 21st century requires that managers connect people, technology, and ethics in order to form strong partnerships with customers, employees, and other organizational stakeholders.

"My experience in Allan Hancock College's Fire Academy was phenomenal. I received a top-notch education from experienced instructors who were dedicated to training the next generation of firefighters. The hands-on training we received in the college's state-of-the-art facility was an amazing opportunity and prepared me for my current job as a firefighter for the Atascadero department of fire and emergency services."
