The Business - General program is specifically designed to prepare students to transfer to a four-year business school. The program allows students to transfer to a variety of business programs, including Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Management, or other business areas. It provides the fundamental knowledge necessary to be a successful business student with the ultimate goal of graduation from a business transfer institution and finding employment in the business field. Students are required to enroll in BUSL 101 within the first twelve credits.
The student's chosen transfer institution determines the mathematics courses to complete in order to be a successful transfer candidate. Students completing MATH 162 and MATH 171 will be best prepared to transfer to baccalaureate programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Students who graduate with FNMT 118 and MATH 161 can still transfer to an AACSB-accredited program but will need to take higher level Math at their transfer institution in order to graduate, or they can transfer to a number of non-AACSB programs and continue in those programs without taking additional math courses. Students should consult with an advisor or their intended transfer institution for additional guidance.
