The Associate of Science in Business Administration degree is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions in business, industry, and government in such departments as sales, marketing, finance, and administration, among others.
The program is divided into two blocks of required courses. Half of the program is composed of general education courses geared toward preparing students for the business environment. The remaining courses are in the field of business and provide the basic and specialized knowledge needed for entry into the business world. After completion of the associate degree, qualified students may continue at the baccalaureate level on the Clarion Campus.
The associate degree in business administration provides a launching point into a bachelor of science in business administration degree in Management, Economics, Accounting, Marketing, Human Resource Management, Real Estate, Finance, or International Business at the Clarion campus.
The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at the Clarion campus is accredited by the AACSB International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
