This area of emphasis is primarily intended to prepare students to transfer to a university and earn a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. The study of Business gives the student an understanding of the social and economic environment in which we live and provides a common body of knowledge for all students who specialize in any business field. It is the purpose of this area of emphasis to develop in students the interpersonal, technical, and managerial competence necessary for successful performance in business, industry, government, and education. Students who choose this field of study will accomplish several objectives. The first of these is to prepare for lifelong professional careers in commerce, finance and industry, as well as for management careers in the public and non-profit sectors. A second objective is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to obtain professional, entry level positions in one or another functional area of the business enterprise, or in some particular field of business. The primary objective, however, is transfer in the field of Business Administration. Specialized options in a bachelors’ degree program such as accounting, finance, entrepreneurship, information systems, and other specializations are widely available in CSU, UC, and private schools.
