Business Administration Builds Critical Skills and Knowledge

Whether you are preparing for entry-level management positions or want to advance your current career, an associate degree for transfer in Business Administration may help you qualify for management opportunities in a variety of fields, including marketing, finance, human resources, and accounting.

Cerro Coso Community College is now offering a Business Administration Associate Degree for Transfer (AS-T) online and in Ridgecrest. This degree provides a clear pathway to a CSU major and baccalaureate degree. The AS-T degree guarantees admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and gives priority admission consideration to your local CSU campus or to a program that is deemed similar to your community college major. This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or campuses.
