This program prepares students for majors in accounting, finance, management, marketing, human resources, economics, entrepreneurship, e-business, small business management, and other business-related fields. 


The Business Administration AS from Monroe Community College includes nine credit hours of business electives and general electives. This permits the student to pursue either of two alternative courses of action:
