Associate of Science General Transfer - Business Pathway

Associate of Science General Transfer - Business Pathway

This program is available at the Beavercreek and Springfield - Leffel Lane locations.

The Business Pathway of the Associate of Science degree emphasizes transfer preparation for students to pursue a bachelor's degree in business.  An Associate of Science degree provides the foundational knowledge and skills in general education that are often required to pursue a Bachelor’s degree.  Courses in this pathway focus on accounting, marketing, and management.  The curriculum is designed to prepare students for seamless transfer into a Bachelor of Science program, particularly at state institutions in Ohio.  It is not designed to prepare students for the skills needed to obtain employment in the field of business upon completion of the associate degree.  Students who wish to obtain more immediate employment in the business field should consider the Associate of Applied Business degree in Management that is offered at Clark State.
