(Code 102)

GRCC Program:


This program allows students the widest possible latitude in choosing courses and an area of specialization in business. Graduates of this program should be eligible for jobs as assistant managers and management trainees, as well as for a wide range of other entry-level positions in various business enterprises.

GRCC also offers more specialized degree and certificate programs in business. These include Accounting, Management and Supervision, Marketing, and Office Administration. Even greater specialization is available through the Fashion Merchandising, Interiors and Furnishings, and Landscape Management programs. To receive a Business Administration Associate in Business degree, 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 credits in Business Administration from GRCC with a “C” or better.

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.

The College is currently in the process of scheduling this degree program at the Lakeshore Campus.

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.

* Students intending to transfer should take EN 101  and EN 102  instead of BA 101  and BA 102 .

** Students who have not passed a formal  keyboarding or typewriting course must enroll in BA 130  Computer Keyboarding before taking BA 133 . Students who have passed one year of high school keyboarding or typewriting with at least a grade of “C” may waive BA 130  . Since waiver is without credit, students must take an equivalent number of elective credits to satisfy graduation requirements. It is strongly recommended, however, that students who have had no formal training in word processing enroll in BA 133 . BA 133  is available as a challenge exam.

Transfer Opportunities:


The Transfer Guide for many bachelor’s degree majors offered at Michigan colleges and universities is available at the Counseling and Career Center and online at www.grcc.edu.
