Introduction to Business Studies
The degree is designed to be a place for students who want to explore careers in Business Studies but are not sure what aspect of business they wish to pursue. In the first year of the program students take a wide variety of business courses, representing the disciplines of accounting, management and marketing. The second year allows for the student to narrow his/her interest and explore courses in a particular discipline. The liberal arts requirements are general to allow a student to take courses that will align with the four year institution of his/her choice.
While it is appropriate for a student to complete the degree and transfer, it is also appropriate for a student to change his/her major into one of the current degrees in the Department of Business Studies: Accounting, Business Communication, Management, or Marketing.
