Armed with a two-year degree in business and a can-do attitude, Kailey Sweet has quickly become a successful entrepreneur. Within one year of graduating with her associate degree in Business Administration, Sweet founded Liberty Translations and Interpreters, grossing over half a million dollars in the first year.  

In addition to being an owner, Sweet served in the role of chief financial officer for three years. In 2023, she transitioned into a shareholder so she could start another business—Universal Language Solutions.  

Sweet attributes much of her success to her business degree from Herkimer. “There was value in every class. Regardless of what you do, you need all the important topics.” Sweet recalls her marketing class project as especially impactful. “My marketing class was a game-changer. We had to create a business, identify its unique advantages, create marketing materials, and make a presentation.”

"In the Business Administration program, we spend a great deal of time addressing current business issues as they pertain to our class topics. Theory on the class subject is taught for a baseline of understanding, but we segway quickly to how this all works in the field. My two main concentrations of subject areas are marketing and management. These areas of study directly impact the success or failure of organizations in our world. It is exciting for the students to observe current businesses use the techniques that they are studying."
