Business Transfer Students

Our mission is to help our students acquire knowledge and develop skills to achieve their life goals by attaining a two-year Associate in Business degree for transfer to an AACSB* accredited business school to complete a bachelor’s degree.

*AACSB is the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which accredits less than 5% of the world’s business schools.
