With today’s business environment growing more complex and global, an understanding of business and management theory with an international perspective is a necessity. This business administration curriculum prepares students for transfer to a four-year business program. A broad-based liberal education including a language requirement, economics, and global business exposure is the foundation of the general education core. The courses related to the major offer students a more in-depth study of international business, where students will explore various business disciplines and skills, learn technology common in the business environment, and focus on accounting, ethics, and entrepreneurship. Successful completion of this business curriculum prepares students to engage in higher levels of study in many areas of business in a four-year baccalaureate program.
1World Language Sequence requirements vary by institution. At HCC, the World Language Sequence means two sequential foreign language courses in the same language (e.g. SPAN-101 and SPAN-102, or FREN-102 and FREN-201), excluding courses taught in English.
|GENERAL EDUCATION CORE||Credits|

at least 60 semester hours of credit.
