A degree in business leads to a broad range of employment opportunities in a variety of industries such as banking, health care/biotechnology, law, entertainment, defense, computer/electronics, and education, as well as in government agencies and not-for-profit organizations.
The Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer degree is designed to prepare students for CSU transfer to complete a bachelor’s degree in business administration or a major deemed similar by the CSU campus. Students completing this degree are guaranteed admission to the CSU system, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major of choice. Students should consult with a counselor for more information on university admission and transfer requirements as this AS-T in Business Administration may not be the best option for students intending to transfer to a particular CSU campus or to a college or university that is not part of the CSU system.
To earn an AS-T in Business Administration, students must complete the following:
- 60 semester or 90 quarter CSU transferable units.
- Minimum grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.0 in all CSU-transferable coursework. While a minimum of 2.0 is required for admission, some transfer institutions and majors may require a higher GPA.
- Completion of 24-25 specified major units. All courses in the major must be completed with a grade of C or better (Title 5 S55063).
- Certified completion of the California State University General Education-Breadth pattern or the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC for CSU) pattern.
