This degree is designed to parallel the bachelor’s degree requirements at most four-year colleges in the region. After transfer, graduates may major in areas such as: accounting, management, marketing, finance, human resource management, or international business.. Students enrolled in this degree program acquire an understanding of the relationship between the liberal arts/social sciences and the management of business enterprises. The required mathematics, science and economics courses provide a solid grounding for making proper business decisions.
