Major in business administration at The New Community College, and you’ll graduate with enhanced analytical skills and knowledge of accounting, business law, and ethical business behavior.
In our Introduction to Business course, you’ll spend the semester exploring case studies about companies to see how they function. In Introduction to Management Information Systems, you’ll learn how to solve business problems and make business decisions using the latest technology.
All of this will lead up to a course called Contemporary Economic Issues where you’ll develop your critical thinking skills considering business in the context of current events and our political system.
If you transfer to a business program at a four-year college, you’ll take additional courses in areas like finance, marketing, human resource management and international business.
Our requirements are designed to make sure you’re proficient in precalculus. If you’re going on for a bachelor’s degree, we’ll get you up to speed in calculus as well.
