Academic Advising assists students in finding the right path to graduation. Career Services helps guide students to success through finding internships and fellowships, career exploration, career coaching, interview preparation, resume review, online career fairs, job boards, career guides, and social media profile reviews.

Online Programs

Being that American Public University is a virtual campus, all of the business programs are offered entirely online. This provides students an affordable education with the convenience of completing coursework at times that work best for their busy schedules. Students have virtual access to discussion boards, libraries, forums, study groups, social media communities, professors, classmates, and advisors.
