Suggested GRCC Program:
Associate in Business
Both classroom experience and on-the-job learning are part of this program, which prepares students for positions in retailing, advertising, sales, and related fields. The job outlook for marketing and sales occupations continues to be good.
To receive an Associate in Business degree in the Marketing program, a student must meet the course and credit requirements. Transfer credits may be used to meet graduation requirements; however, a degree candidate must complete at least six BA (business course) credits from Grand Rapids Community College with a “C” or better.
Advanced-standing credit for BA 133 may be granted to graduates of high school programs that are members of the Kent Metropolitan Articulation Project.
The following recommendations are presented as a guide. Courses may be taken in any order as long as all the listed requirements (including prerequisites) are met.
Note: This program is designed for career entry and/or advancement in selected fields. It is not intended to be a transfer program. Students planning to transfer should see a counselor or faculty advisor concerning transfer options.
