The Business Administration degree is a university-parallel program equivalent to the first two years of a bachelor degree program. This program prepares students for majors in such areas as accounting, finance, management, marketing, human resources, economics, entrepreneurship, E-Business, small business management, and
other business-related fields.
The Business Administration Program includes business and general education courses to provide a sound background for further study and a career in business.
Please note that this program includes nine credit hours of business electives and general electives. This permits the student to pursue either of two alternate courses of action:
(1) Build a concentration in a specific business area by taking courses with the
following prefixes: ACC, BUS, ECO, MAR
(2) Acquire up to nine credits of business and/or liberal arts course work with a view toward imparting the greatest measure of transfer potential for upper-level programs elsewhere.
