Business Transfer Program

  • Business, Finance & Information Technology

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.  

What Will I Learn?

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? 

What are my Career Opportunities?

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.
