Business: Business Administration (A.S.)

Study business administration at JCC

The Business: Business Administration degree (A.S.) prepares students for transfer into bachelor level programs in business and many business-related majors. This degree allows for flexibility in selecting major and elective courses, enabling students to match the requirements set by transfer institutions. Students who successfully complete this degree can transfer into programs that lead to professional careers including accounting (CPA or CMA), business administration, financial management, human resource management, industrial relations, international business, management science, marketing, production control, and others. Working with their faculty advisor, JCC students can create a program that will help them achieve full junior status upon completion and transfer.

  • Both the business administration degree and entrepreneurship certificate can be completed at the same time. Plan ahead and discuss specific courses with your advisor.
  • Program is available online.
