This program provides students who wish to concentrate in the study of accounting or business administration with coursework that is a common base for advanced study and/or careers in business. Students who study in this area typically seek degrees at senior institutions in the fields of accounting, finance, management, marketing and personnel administration among others. A degree in business is a popular choice for students planning to attend law school upon graduation. Northwest College’s Business Department offers students an opportunity to build a solid foundation for further study in these programs.
Students planning to enter careers in business through advanced study at a four-year institution will need to have coursework beyond the program requirements at Northwest College.
Students must consult closely with their academic advisor in the Business Department to determine which general education elective courses (social science, humanities, visual and performing arts, and lab science) will satisfy specific requirements of their intended transfer college or university. Most four-year institutions have prescribed requirements for admission to junior-level, upper-division status in their respective business programs. Note: Not all business courses offered at NWC are designed for transfer. Please consult with your academic advisor before selecting courses. Students will be required to complete each core course with a “C-” or better to meet program requirements.
