Resume advise
#1
Hi everyone I was not sure where to post this and since there probably is a lot of adults like me pursuing college degrees I thought this would be a perfect place. So a position for a supervisor just came up. My boss is encouraging me to apply for the position. However I'm almost certain that they are going to want a resume and I've worked in the same place for over a decade so I haven't had to fill out a resume in awhile. 
I'm working towards three degrees currently but unfortunately I have no completed a single one yet. I'm currently five units away from an Electronics degree at TESU utilizing my Navy schooling and classes that I've taken in college. I need two more units in Electronics and the capstone. I'm also three classes away from an Associate's in Business at my local college.
I decided awhile back to pursue the BSBA in Accounting due to the way my job pays for classes and the TESU residency requirement. I was going to complete the electronics degree once I was done with my BSBA and had residency at TESU. The associate's in Business would just tack on once I was done with my math requirements for the BSBA. 
There is some politics being played out and I think that they are thinking about promoting a female coworker into that position. I have far more experience in the field and my boss has a say in the process and I'm sure he will root for me. 
However she has an Associate in Liberals Arts and a Bachelors in Kinisiology from a local University. I on the other hand have around 100 college credits and no degree. 
My question is what is everyone's thoughts on putting related coursework under my resume? I've been reading some online posts and it seems this more geared towards people with little work history. 
Also the classes that I've taken pertain more to the position that I'm applying for. Classes like Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, Business Law, Business Communications. The company that I work for has tried to become more "corporate" in the last few years and they love to use Business terminology. Years ago when I inquired about moving into that position I was told that it was more of "Business" position and since I was a technician that I didn't have the relevant training.

I would think that a major in business administration with concentration in accounting would already explain what you've studied. The classes that you've taken are standard in a business administration program. If you guesstimate a completion date of, let's say September 2020, then they know you've completed about three years' worth of classes.

Hi - I'm brand new here, but saw your post. I'm an adult learner returning to school to finish my Bachelor's degree as I send my oldest off to her freshman year of college. Several years ago, my husband was sending out his resume for a new when he was one semester away from getting his Bachelor's. So we put on his resume an expected graduation date. He had several companies contact him and he eventually got a really good job. I would put an expected graduation date for BOTH your Associates and Bachelors in Business. It shows you are working towards both and how close you are to getting finished so the reader will understand that you already have several relevant business courses that you have already successfully completed. Here's how we did his in 2011.

Best of luck to you!

I would put "Expected Graduation XX/XXXX" rather than "graduation" because it could be misleading (especially if you put the year and it already IS that year, like if you were going to graduate in December 2012 and it was June 2012).
