The changing business environment is growing more global, complex, and technological. The business administration curriculum prepares students to transfer to a four-year business program. A broad-based liberal education is the foundation of the general education core. The courses related to the major offer students the opportunity to explore various business disciplines and skills, learn technology common in the business environment, and focus on such areas as accounting, international business, economics, business ethics, and entrepreneurship. Successful completion of this business curriculum will prepare students to engage in the higher levels of study in many areas of business in a four-year baccalaureate program.

General Education Core

Students enrolled in transfer patterns must take a minimum of 30 credits in General Education. Each student’s total of general education and required courses must equal at least 60 semester hours of credit.
