Area of Study: Degree/Certificate:
The Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in Business is designed for the student who knows he or she wants to transfer to a four year school and complete a bachelor’s degree in business after finishing the Associate of Arts degree at Tri-C. This program has been reviewed with several northeast Ohio schools to make sure the course requirements will be accepted at the transfer school. As a result, students should be taking courses with the confidence in knowing they are headed toward their degree goals in an efficient and suitable manner. This two year program is appropriate for a student interested in completing a four year degree in any of the key areas of business including, for example, business management, human resources, small business management, marketing, purchasing and supply management, international business, and accounting.
It should be noted that students interested in transferring to a four year school to complete their bachelor’s degree should contact the transfer school as early as possible in their academic program to insure they are taking the most appropriate courses for that institution. This program does not require a student to go on and complete a four year degree. If a student stops after this degree program, he or she will still have an Associate of Arts degree. It is, however, an excellent and efficient way for a student to use Tri-C as a stepping stone on the path to completing a four year business degree.
