BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION / A.S. DEGREE

Ammerman - Eastern - Grant
Hegis Code: 5004

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. program in Business Administration, which allows a greater range of courses in applied business areas.

Admission Procedures and Requirements

Applicants desiring this degree who do not have the above qualifications or who are transferring from a different degree program must receive permission from the Business Administration Department or an appropriate business administrator. Students who do not meet the admission criteria may be admitted on a provisional basis.
