Frequently Asked Questions

Why major in Business Administration?

Students prepare to transfer to a four-year college or university in any field of business after earning their associate degree.

What will students learn if they study Business Administration?

The program is an intensive one that includes challenging mathematics and business courses, as well as sciences and general education.

Can students transfer to a four-year college or university?

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all of the lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements with private institutions may provide similar transfer provisions. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?

Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or by completing the appropriate class. Students also need a grade of “C” or higher in high school algebra II, geometry and in one year of laboratory science.

How long will it take to complete this degree?

Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.
