International Business - A.A. Degree (Transfer)

A Business Administration Area of Study

Application Code 173

For curriculum information, contact the Business and Computer Systems Division—Room DH-239—443-518-1520.

With today's business environment growing more complex and global, an understanding of business and management theory with an international perspective is a necessity. This business administration curriculum prepares students for transfer to a four-year business program. A broad-based liberal education including a language requirement, economics, and global business exposure is the foundation of the general education core. The courses related to the major offer students a more in-depth study of international business, where students will explore various business disciplines and skills, learn technology common in the business environment, and focus on accounting, ethics, and entrepreneurship.  Successful completion of this business curriculum prepares students to engage in 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.
