Business Administration is the study
of basic principles and techniques to effectively manage and lead organizations.
The Associate in Science in Business
Administration for Transfer, also called the Business Administration AS-T Degree,
is designed for students planning to transfer to a 4-year university and major
in general business or a more specialized field of business such as finance, accounting,
international business, marketing, or management. The intent of the degree is
to assist students in seamlessly transferring to a CSU. However, transfer
requirements at four-year colleges and universities tend to vary from
institution to institution; students should consult with a counselor for
specific information regarding the transfer requirements of their preferred
college or university. Even students who choose not to major in business administration
find that coursework in the field can improve their ability to think
critically, problem-solve, manage their lives, and understand the economic
issues that engage our world, our country, and our communities.
This degree requires students to
complete 60 CSU transferable units including completion of CSU GE or IGETC and
28 units in the major with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better. Title 5 requires that students must earn a “C”
or better in all courses required for the major or area of emphasis. There are no additional graduation
requirements. Students should consult with a counselor
when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements.
