Oakland Community College 


Associate in Liberal Arts (ICM.INT.ALA)

   The International Commerce degree program is designed to combine courses with a global emphasis in business, liberal arts and foreign language. It focuses on developing competencies in international business and global economics alongside international cultural awareness and language skill. Students completing this program of study will be able to transfer these competencies to senior college programs in International Commerce. Because transferability of credits varies with colleges and universities, programs and departmental majors, students are urged to discuss their program plans with an OCC counselor and transfer institution.

   Graduating from this program does not automatically qualify the student for the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA) endorsement. Students in this program seeking MTA endorsement should work closely with an OCC counselor to identify classes from the MTA List which apply to the endorsement and to degree requirements.
