AS-T in Business 2.0

Associate in Science in Business Administration 2.0 for Transfer (AS-T) The Associate in Science in Business Administration for Transfer 2.0 (AS-T in Business 2.0) offers a challenging and well-balanced distribution of business courses, specially selected to meet the requirements of transfer institutions.

The curriculum provides essential knowledge and skills in the accounting, financial, economics, management, and marketing facets of business.

Students can pursue their interest in several specialized areas of business (global business, human resources management, project management, marketing, entrepreneurship, and business computing) through their choice of business electives.

The AS-T in Business 2.0 is designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU institution for students who plan to transfer and complete a CSU major or baccalaureate degree in Business Administration.

California Community College students who are awarded an AS-T in Business 2.0 are guaranteed admission with junior standing somewhere in the CSU system and given priority admission consideration to their local CSU institution or to a program that is deemed similar to their community college major.

This priority does not guarantee admission to specific majors or institutions.
