The SUNY Morrisville Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree program in automotive management emphasizes a combination of automotive and business management courses to get you on the road to a career in automotive sales and merchandising, service or production.
Live laboratory classes in automotive management areas such as parts, shop, fleet and merchandising are combined with courses in accounting, business administration, economics, computer science and mathematics to provide you with a vast array of expertise as you enter the automotive industry. A required internship in a business related to the automotive or transportation industry also prepares you for immediate entry into the workforce, with the potential to lead to your first employment opportunity.
