Business Administration for Transfer


Business Administration is a broad area encompassing administration, management, marketing, finance, entrepreneurship, supervision, banking, small business, merchandising, international trade, accounting, and information systems. Study in this area explores the theories, history, principles, skills, practices, laws, ethiscs and technologies governing the increasingly global business environment. The American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), a national busines/management program accrediting agency, stipulates that lower division course work is preparatory to a bachelor's degree. Thus, this program is designed to provide a basic overview of the subject matter.


The Associate in Science for Transfer (AS-T) is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor's degree in a similar major at a CSU campus. Students completing this degree (AS-T) are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not to a particular campus or major.
