Students elect the Associate in Business Administration Degree for various reasons that may include further study toward a bachelor degree or as preparation for CPA certification or MBA programs.

Before taking business courses, students should consult a counselor since the requirements of four-year colleges and universities, both private and public, vary considerably.
