OCCC launches 2-year Business degree

in Lincoln City, beginning Fall 2015


Starting in Fall 2015, OCCC’s North County Center in Lincoln City will get down to business. That’s when the Center launches a Lincoln City-based, two-year business degree, the Associate of Science Oregon Transfer (ASOT) Business.


“This program aims to deliver most of its classes here in North Lincoln County, to serve our growing population,” said Chris Spaulding, OCCC’s Career and Technical Education Director for STEM Programs. “This degree is ideally suited to our North County economy, which is driven by lodging, dining and retail establishments.” Many of these businesses, Spaulding said, are owned by out-of-state individuals or corporations, and need local managers with fundamental business skills as well as knowledge of the local market. Read more.
