BUSINESS

To have her own business while in college, Maddie knew she needed balance.

Her priority would be earning an Associate Degree in Business from SUNY Genesee Community College 100% online. Studying at home would allow her the flexibility to work her business around her classes, on weekends, and during long breaks. It would also save her on room/board expenses, which she could put back into her business.
