The associate degree program in Business Administration provides a foundation in business that, through two options, prepares graduates for either entrance to the Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB) programs in business or for direct entry into the work place. The primary objective of this major is to provide a business-oriented program with sufficient communicative and mathematical skills, socially relevant course work, and specific business specialties to develop a well-rounded and knowledgeable graduate.
The General Business Option provides an introductory foundation to core aspects of the business environment while also preparing students for future transfer into the Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB).
The Professional Studies Option provides a technically oriented program that prepares students for direct entry into the work force. Because some of the course work in this option is not accepted in baccalaureate business programs, students are encouraged to work closely with faculty and staff advisers.
Students who plan to continue into BSB should meet with their advisers regarding entrance to major and other related requirements.
For the Associate in Science degree in Business Administration, a minimum of 60 credits is required.
