Professional Coaching
A.A.S. Degree (Career)
A Business Management Area of Study

For curriculum information, contact the Business and Computer Systems Division—Room DH-239—443-518-1520.

The professional coaching area of study is designed to prepare graduates to function as coaches in an organizational setting, establish a coaching practice, or add coaching to an existing set of leadership skills. The curriculum is focused to provide theory and application for both the business and life (personal) coaching specialties. Students with no prior experience in coaching or management may enroll, as well as those who have business or consulting experience. This area of study will improve business, entrepreneurial, and management skills, prepare students for employment in a broad range of management positions, and develop or enhance their own private practice. Transferability to private certification programs is being developed.
