View Transfer Options, Degrees & Certificates

Business administration and management courses help prepare students for leadership and decision-making in the workplace and provide educational foundations enabling students to transfer to 4-year institutions and advance their business education. Students who study business have the opportunity to develop core skills, across an array of subjects including, accounting, finance, management, human resources, marketing, international business, and organizational behavior. With these skills students will be able to recognize relationships between people and processes; and apply theory to real-world problems. Courses are designed to provide foundational business knowledge while providing opportunity to develop management and leadership skills. Many business majors continue their education while others go on to work in different sectors, pursue roles within small-to-medium-sized enterprises, innovative new start-ups, charities, non-profit organizations and NGOs. Others take action on an idea and launch their own business.

Program Length

Four semesters.

Transfer Options
