Business Administration (Transfer)

Robin Imgrund, Division Chair
Humanities 17

If a student wishes to earn an associate degree from Allegany College of Maryland and then transfer to a four-year college to earn a bachelor's degree in business administration, this program of study will provide an appropriate preparation for such transfer. Although this curriculum is the normal type of preparation for students who plan to enter various bachelor's degree curricula at four-year colleges, it must be noted that different colleges may require somewhat different coursework. The student majoring in this curriculum at Allegany College of Maryland is encouraged to decide as soon as possible what four-year college he/she wishes to attend. As soon as that decision is made the student should meet with his/her advisor and a staff member in the Advising Center to alter this program to meet the specific requirements of the particular four-year institution. The Advising Center staff is also equipped to work with the student to help him/her make a decision regarding the selection of the four-year institution.

Successful completion of this program qualifies a student to apply for an Associate of Science degree in Business Administration.
