Business Administration (AS.BUS)

The Business Administration curriculum is designed for the student who plans to earn a business-related baccalaureate degree at a four-year college or university. The program provides the necessary preparation in the business disciplines, accounting, business law, economics, management, statistics, and other business-related courses necessary for acceptance into third-year status at a four-year college.

Some four-year colleges and universities have mathematics- oriented programs, and all business schools require a high level of written and oral communication skills. Students should consult college and university catalogs before selecting a particular RCBC business program and/or courses.

Graduates of this program should be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of accounting theory and practice;
  • Attain the knowledge of economic concepts and their applications;
  • Understand the importance of effective communication skills;
