Associate of Science in Business Administration

The Associate of Science degree with a major in Business Administration is an excellent first step in earning your degree in a business related field.

The student must complete the major with a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average in courses applied to the major. Any specific business course completed by the student outside of the business core may not be counted toward more than one business major or minor.

This generalized major gives you great exposure to business basics. Students focus on general skills that make them flexible practitioners in both the business community and public organizations.
