The Business Administration Associate in Science (AS) degree is intended for students who want to transfer to complete a bachelor's degree. This degree is 60 credits in length. High school courses in math and science are beneficial but not required.
This program includes 30 technical credits in the field of business and exposes the student to finance, management principles, accounting, and personal computers. The 30 technical credits may vary slightly, depending on requirements of the receiving transfer institution. The program also includes 30 general education credits from within the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC). General education courses within at least four different goal areas of the MnTC are universally transferable to all institutions in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system.
The AS degree is solely for students who intend to transfer to a bachelor's degree program. This is different from the typical AAS degree, which routes the student directly into the workplace.
The college has developed several transfer agreements with similar bachelor's degree programs. Since transferring credits involves approval from the "receiving" institution, to avoid taking unnecessary courses, it is important to investigate and plan coursework. The college is prepared to work with students as they address transfer issues.
