Business is a broad term that can be used to refer to a diverse group of fields that together create a climate in which an organization can contribute in any of a variety of ways to the overall economy. Specialties within business include accounting, finance, human resources, marketing, and management. People with a more general business degree or a specialty in any of these fields can work in any and every sector of society: industry, healthcare, retail, real estate, non-profits. The possibilities are nearly endless.
Across business fields, most general and specialized degrees will involve some math ability, organizational skills, project development and management, working with a team, prioritizing, seeing the overall scope and details required for a project or event, and communication skills. Most business degrees, therefore, will incorporate coursework that will give students a solid foundation in all these areas.

You will need to see an Academic Advisor as you plan your transfer program.
