Associate of Arts
Faculty Advisor: Nancy Kimble · Phone: 410-386-8292 · Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Business Administration major introduces students to the field of business. Many graduates from this program transfer to four-year colleges as business majors with a concentration in marketing, management, accounting, finance, international business, human resource management, or management information systems. This program of study is also appropriate for students who plan to transfer to four-year colleges in fields of study outside of business. An associate’s degree in business, when combined with a bachelor’s degree in another field of study, will equip students with knowledge in their area of expertise as well as the language and decision-making process of management. The associate degree in Business Administration is also appropriate for those who wish to conclude their studies at the associate’s level. The degree program provides students with an understanding of how and why decisions are made within a business and how to be a productive member on an organization.
There are three emphases within the Business Administration major. The first, Business Administration—General Business, provides students with a well-rounded core of courses within the traditional concepts of business: accounting, economics, management, marketing and law. The second, Business Administration—Management Information Systems, combines study in the area of computer information systems with an understanding of business. The third, Business Administration—International Business, is customized for students with an interest in international business and finance.
Business majors with a 3.200 GPA may be eligible for membership in Alpha Beta Gamma. For more information, see page 36 in the 2014 - 2015 College Catalog.
