Business Administration, A.S., Major #0671

Business Administration is a ThinkPad University curriculum using laptop computers integrated into courses.

The associate in science degree in Business Administration requires half the course work to be divided among the humanities, the mathematics/science and the social science fields of study. The emphasis is in the mathematics/science area where four courses are required for graduation. The other half of the required course work is in the applied business area as described in the Business Administration A.A.S. degree description. This program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).

While a large majority of students who graduate with the A.S. degree transfer to bachelor degree programs, experience has shown that the background acquired from the business courses is sufficient to make a student eligible for a wide range of positions in business and government, as well.

This degree is primarily a transfer program; however, some students chose to enter the workforce.
