Business Administration for Transfer


Business Administration programs at IVC, both at the associate degree and certificate of achievement levels, prepare the student by offering courses that allow students opportunities to acquire practical skills, technical knowledge and experience in a variety of fields. The fields of study available are: Business Administration for transfer, Accounting Technician, Administrative Assistant, Financial Services, Management, Marketing and Office Technician. These programs introduce the student to the world of commercial transactions, which occur in the distribution of resources in our American economic system.

Business Administration

The Business Administration program prepares students in lower division courses required for advanced degrees in areas such as International Business, Management, Marketing, and Accounting. Since requirements vary at each four-year school, transfer students should consult with a counselor to develop a program for the specific transfer institution they wish to attend.
