The Online Business Administration program provides accelerated coursework, introducing students to a broad overview of business options while preparing for transfer to a four-year institution. The curriculum meets the requirements of the first two years of study at most colleges and universities.
There are three primary goals for this program:
Completion of an associate degree in two years
User-friendly scheduling for students who are working or have other obligations
Comprehensive online support services
Students who have completed the program will be able to:
Transfer credits toward a baccalaureate degree at a four-year institution
Demonstrate in-depth knowledge and understanding of essential business skills, such as management, marketing, accounting and technology
Identify, apply and integrate functional business knowledge to analyze and resolve business-related problems
Participants in this program will be enrolled as a cohort to encourage support and collaboration. This means that all students in the cohort will be scheduled together in 7- or 5-week courses for the duration of the program. Typically, students will take two courses within each 7-week block. In an average semester, all students will have completed at least 12 credits.
