Business Administration (A.S.)

With a Business Administration A.S. degree from Onondaga, students will have several options upon graduation. Primarily, this degree is intended for students who will transfer to a four-year degree in their chosen field of business. Articulation agreements allow students to transfer with junior status to many public and private four-year schools.

Rather than transferring immediately, some students will choose to seek employment after finishing this degree. Upon completion of the degree these students will hold an A.S. in Business Administration, and will be well positioned to return to the academic world at a later point in their lives.
