Associate of Applied Science in Business Administration
The Associate of Applied Science in Business Administration (AASBA) program is designed to prepare students for entry-level management positions. This articulated program targets immediate employment in a Business Administration-related job. Completion of that degree can provide students with a transition path to a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration (BABA) degree as well. The curriculum includes courses in general business, accounting, economics, legal studies, management, and marketing. With a goal of maximizing student success, this program is designed with two pre-requisites as parts of the general education requirements: College Algebra and one additional mathematics course. In the absence of transfer credit, students may need to take additional elective courses to satisfy the total unit requirements for the degree. The program courses may be taken in any sequence. Courses in the Business major will be taught through the lenses of Christian principles.
