Pre-Business Administration (PBA)

Description

The Pre-Business Administration program provides students with the academic foundation needed for transfer to a bachelor’s degree program with a business-related major, such as business administration, accounting, finance, management, or marketing.

Students earn an Associate of Arts degree and are well-prepared to begin their junior year in a bachelor’s degree program at the four-year institution of their choice.

Students must consult with their advisor before choosing electives, to ensure that elective courses meet the requirements of the institution where the student will complete their bachelor’s degree.
