New business administration degree prepares students for transfer

Does a career leading others and pursuing your passion sound good to you?

Check out Jackson College’s new business administration program with the launch of a redesigned Associate of Arts in Business Administration degree!

The College has re-tooled its business degree to enhance and streamline transferability in connection with the Michigan Transfer Pathways initiative. This 62-hour Associate in Arts will offer students more credits that are transferable to the majority of Michigan’s four-year institutions. Save money and go further with this new program.

 Focus on transfer

Students will gain the tools to analyze a business situation, shape long-term action plans, oversee plans as they are carried out, and make countless large and small decisions along the way. They will develop effective written and oral communication skills, enhance leadership potential, utilize technology to assist in decision-making, understand customer relationships, and explore the impact of global business.

A business degree offers flexibility for the career path – students may pursue management, own their own business, work in sales or customer service, and choose from businesses or government, non-profit, education or manufacturing sectors. Possible salary levels are varied, depending on job and location.

Students will take six core classes, including business law, managerial and financial accounting, micro and macroeconomics, and computer information systems, and a wider range of business and general education-related courses to satisfy Michigan Transfer Agreement coursework and electives. A broad base of knowledge from a variety of courses will help students develop the needed business knowledge and acumen to lead and manage in the dynamic and oftentimes complex nature of today’s global organization.

“We have developed this new business associate degree to offer students a broad understanding of business and to prepare them to enter into their selected four-year baccalaureate program.  While at JC, students will be provided with a tailored program to save money on core business classes and general electives while still being provided a one-on-one approach to learning.  Students will leave JC with both an associate degree and the added confidence to excel in ‘Step 2’ of their academic journey!” said Dr. Stephen Young, professor.
