With the Business Administration specialization, students will take additional classes in accounting and microeconomics which they can use to transfer to a business program at another school. Students should understand that most professions are glad to see an Associate Degree in their applicants; however, the Associate Degree shows proficiency in general education, not advanced education in the topic that the student is seeking. Any student seeking a professional career in any subject should strongly consider a four year education from a respected institution.
