Whether you are certain about your future career in business, undecided, or anywhere in between, the Associate in Arts (AA) Business Transfer Degree Program is the right place to start.
This program is designed for students who wish to complete two years of general education study at JJC prior to transferring to a university as a junior. In fact, when you complete your first two years of college at JJC, you'll save an average of $38,000.
In this program, you'll learn the skills that are essential to succeeding in any business career. The Business Transfer Program focuses on completion of the general education requirements and introductory business courses.
General education requirements include communication, social and behavioral sciences, humanities, fine arts, and mathematics. These are the same classes that are mandatory at four-year universities: so why not take them at JJC for a fraction of the cost?
An Associate in Arts (AA) Business Transfer Degree is not a career degree. Your career opportunities will depend on the area of specialization within business that you will chose after transfer.
The business transfer degree pathway featured below is designed to match the requirements of four-year programs in business. It represents a selection of courses from a broader list for the Associate in Arts (A.A.) transfer degree. Please note: It is strongly advised that prospective students meet with a faculty adviser (listed on the right side) before beginning this program. Faculty advisers will guide students in choosing the best pathway for them.

Students can complete their general education requirements at a fraction of the cost of attending a four-year university. In fact, students save approximately $38,000 in tuition and fees over two years in comparison to a state university.
It's not always easy to know what career path is right for you until you've taken different courses to see what you like. An AA with a Business Administration Major is a general degree in business. Once you get an idea what specialty is right for you, you may choose to further specialize in various business majors after transfer.
