The program supports students' needs to acquire skills that will allow them to establish a career and/or become more productive in their current organizations.  We are particularly committed to helping students become professionals who are capable of thinking critically, working in teams, utilizing technology, performing research, making decisions, and communicating effectively in a global economy.

The Business Administration program emphasizes developing varied skills for a range of jobs, from entry-level work in business to movement into management. With a business administration background students can apply to almost any industry. Every organization needs people with management skills, which means that the types of careers a student can pursue are virtually unlimited.

  • The program is focused on management and operational skills that are crucial to running a business.
  • It is designed to help students develop adaptability and competency in areas including: leadership, management, marketing, human resources, interpersonal communications, e-Commerce, e-Marketing, finance, project management, and sales.

The AAS in Business Administration will most commonly transfer into a Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree program at several four-year universities. Contact an advisor or business faculty for specific information or to obtain the recommended sequencing of courses.

Graduation requirement

All students graduating with an AAS or level II certificate must complete LSCS Student Success Initiative (SSI) requirements. To determine your SSI status, see a college advisor.

The general education core will transfer to a variety of colleges and universities, and the degree will transfer in whole to some universities. Through articulation, some students may have earned college credit while in high school. Contact a counselor, division advisor, or faculty member at any college for specific information about articulation and to obtain the recommended sequencing of courses.
