Business Administration (A.S.)

The Business Administration Program, administered by the Business Management Department, provides students with a general education background and 12 credits in basic business. After completion of the program, students may transfer to a senior college or university to attain the baccalaureate degree in business.

Many students have inquired into the difference between the Business Administration and the Business Management Programs. The Business Administration Program is suggested for those who want a strong liberal arts background, and who intend to continue their undergraduate education in business. The Business Management Program is designed primarily for students who desire a career-oriented education. Both programs prepare students to enter four-year colleges for the continuation of their baccalaureate studies.

The Business Administration program awards the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree.

Program Outcomes

Students will navigate a multi-cultural, rapidly changing business environment as shown by their ability to:

  1. Effectively communicate using the language of business
  2. Make business decisions using a systematic, evaluative, information-based approach rooted in ethics and social responsibility
  3. Demonstrate knowledge of current events and trends in business, including potential career tracks in their area of interest
