Earn a Business Administration Degree at A-B Tech Madison and A-B Tech South

As of fall 2015, A-B Tech Madison and A-B Tech South partnered to offer the entire associate degree program in Business Administration at either location.

The business specific courses will be offered through interactive video (ITV) and the general education requirements will be available either as regular offerings at each site or through ITV.

Students can easily pair the above courses with general education classes at each location for a full-time course schedule.  This is a very exciting opportunity for Madison and South, and one that will benefit current students and also improve programmatic access for prospective students who live near these sites.



ITV – Interactive Video

ITV is now not only available on the A-B Tech Madison site, allowing students the opportunity to take classes on the Asheville campus from the Madison site, we now have several classes being hosted on the Madison Site and broadcast to other A-B Tech campuses!

ITV provides students the opportunity to sit in the classroom at one location and watch the entire instructional component via real-time video from the host location.  ITV technology allows the student the opportunity to ask questions, etc., during the class.  Courses offered via ITV are less likely to be canceled!
