Business Admnistration

If entering the field of business administration is your goal, then Chaffey College can help you attain your objective. We can help you prepare to earn a four-year degree in business administration at a Cal State University or other four-year institutions through our transfer program. If your goal is to join the workforce as soon as you can we can help you through our two-year certificate program and join the workforce right away. If that’s the case, we also have a program for you.

Our programs will prepare you to work on the business side of many areas ranging from advertising services and public relations to schools and colleges and arts and entertainment. People with degrees in business administration are also needed in local and federal government, hospitals and in research and development. Some students use their Chaffey College degrees to prepare for establishing a business of their own.

To determine which pathway is the best option for your specific needs we recommend you sit down with a Chaffey College counselor to obtain more information on our degree programs and requirements along with university admission and transfer requirements.

The business administration program offers an associate in science in business administration for transfer (AS-T) and an associate in science in business administration/Small business entrepreneur. Certificate programs in business administration, business administration/marketing, business administration/small business entrepreneur level 1 and business administration/small business entrepreneur level 2 are also offered.
