Program Description

Program Description

The goal of the Business Management A.S. program is to equip students with the competencies required to succeed in a rigorous bachelor’s degree program. The program is designed to parallel the first two years of the bachelor’s degree requirements at most four-year colleges and universities. Transfer agreements between Westchester Community College and four-year colleges in the region assure that, with careful planning, A.S. graduates may transfer most of their credits when they enter the same curriculum at those institutions.
