This program is primarily geared toward students who are planning to transfer to an upper-level school’s 4-year Bachelor’s program, such as Niagara University, State University of New York College at Buffalo, the University at Buffalo, or the SUNY College at Brockport. Prospective students must be able to complete courses in Mathematics that are beyond Algebra and Trigonometry. A student may pursue this degree as either full-time or part time. Because there is a specific sequencing of courses, a student who is pursuing this degree part time may need to take longer than eight semesters to complete the requirements.

By the end of this program, a student should be able to communicate with others effectively in both oral and written formats as well as demonstrate an understanding of the fundamental managerial, organizational, and marketing principles functions and issues. Students should also show competencies related to understanding the impact of social, economic, historical, global, and technological trends on businesses and organizations.
