"If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability."
- Henry Ford

Programs and courses in the Business Department have been developed for students who wish to:

  1. Earn an Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer (AS-T) degree. The AS-T in Business Administration is aligned with the CSU system and is aimed at preparation and readiness for transfer to the CSU system.

  2. Meet occupational qualifications of business and industry. Occupational curricula are designed to prepare students to enter a vocational field and successfully pursue a career.

  3. Meet lower division requirements for transfer to a four-year college or university to obtain a bachelor’s and/or advanced degree.


Students should consult their advisors to determine additional courses, within and outside the School of Applied Science and Business, which are most appropriate for individual objectives. For more information please call (760) 773-2571.
