Business Administration degrees are among the most popular college programs in the United States and with good reason. Equipped with a versatile degree, students can potentially launch a career in any industry, from marketing to manufacturing, accounting to analytics. With a two-year Associate degree, students find employment as a project manager or information system analyst or jump into the role of an office manager or a small business owner. With a Bachelor’s degree in business administration, students qualify for vital roles in private, public, and nonprofit organizations. Students will be prepared to work across industries as a business analyst, human resources generalist, operations manager, or marketing specialist. Some Business Administration graduates also venture into entrepreneurship, creating their own successful enterprises from the ground up.
MSJC offers a range of course work to prepare students for the workforce or to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. All four-year institutions prescribe their own standards for course evaluation and admissions. Courses that fulfill major requirements for an associate degree in this program might not be the same as those required for transfer into a similar major at a four-year university.
Transfer students are advised to do research on prospective majors and careers through the Career/Transfer Center and the MSJC catalog. Students interested in transferring to CSU’s or UC’s can access major preparation by visiting http://www.assist.org. All students are advised to meet with a counselor at least once a semester to create or update their comprehensive education plan.
