School of Business

The School of Business is home to an eclectic array of programs designed to prepare students for transfer to a four-year college or university in Business Administration to gain specific occupational and technical job skills for immediate employment. 

  • We provide day, evening and online classes in accounting, management, economics and other foundational disciplines that define the world of business
  • Articulation agreements and customizable plans of study enable students to transfer to selected business schools at junior level. Best of all, when students follow the plan of study, every credit earned at Reynolds is accepted for transfer. Students may save upwards of $12, 000 by completing their first two years in our Business Administration AS degree program.
  • Our information technology courses cover a broad spectrum of topics, including information technology essentials, database, programming and networking. We prepare students for managing virtual desktop environments, designing mobile applications and securing IT networks from intrusions and attacks.
  • Unique to the school is the Center for Culinary Arts and Hospitality — the primary source for instruction,  training, continuing education and staffing for the region’s hospitality, culinary and tourism industries.
