Program Learning OutcomesCurriculum Code: BUAS-AS

     This two-year program is designed for students interested in business careers who plan to continue their studies toward a baccalaureate degree in business at a four-year college or university after completing their associate degree. The program offers a challenging and well-balanced distribution of business and liberal arts courses, specifically selected to meet the requirements of transfer institutions.

     Students who plan to enter employment immediately after graduation (rather than transfer) are advised to select the A.A.S. degree in Business Administration, which allows a greater range of courses in applied business areas.

Admission Procedures and Requirements

     Admission to the A.S. degree in Business Administration for entering students requires a minimum 80 average in high school and three years of mathematics through Algebra II or equivalent.

     Continuing college students must have completed MAT111. Applications are processed on a rolling basis fall and spring, with most students meeting minimum standards being admitted.
