This program is designed to prepare students to transfer to a four-year college or university offering majors in business, international business, marketing, economics, finance, or a related area. The curriculum provides the student who is considering a career in international business, commerce or diplomacy with a solid background in language, culture, international politics, and business. The program will provide the student with a better understanding of global political, social, economic, and trade relationships by blending elements of liberal arts and business curricula.
Students should meet regularly with their program advisor to make certain that their course selections meet the requirements of the college and major to which they plan to transfer.
Recommended Preparation: Three years of high school mathematics through intermediate algebra are required. Applicants should have enough background in a foreign language to enter MCC courses at the intermediate level. Information concerning foreign language placement is available in the Business Department and the World Language and Cultures Department. Students not meeting these requirements may need more than two years to complete this degree.
