Business Administration (BUS.ABA)

The Associate in Business Administration Degree offers a cognitive foundation in areas fundamental to business studies.

Students elect the Associate in Business Administration Degree for various reasons that may include further study toward a bachelor degree.

Before taking business courses, students should consult a counselor since the requirements of four-year colleges and universities, both private and public, vary considerably.

A career in business is versatile.  Some occupations, such as human resources managers, involve working with people; others, including logisticians, focus on products.  No matter your interest, there's likely a business angle to it that you could pursue. *Bureau of Labor Statistics
