This program is intended for transfer to Eastern Washington University and Gonzaga University.
The study of business administration leads to career opportunities in accounting, economics, information systems, finance, human resources management, marketing, production management, and other business-related fields of study. This program provides the first two years of study leading to a bachelor's degree in these business fields.
For admission to a College of Business and enrollment in 300 level business courses, the typical requirement is completion of a "business core." This usually includes the following five courses: ACCT 201 and 202 (Principles of Accounting), ECON 201 and 202 (Principles of Economics), and BUSA 271 (Statistical Inference and Decision Analysis).
Students who intend to transfer to the College of Business at the University of Idaho, Lewis Clark State College, and most other business schools should complete CAPS 130 (Introduction to Spreadsheets) or possess equivalent knowledge. Accounting students are usually required to take additional courses beyond other business majors. Students should see their advisor for these requirements.
Students who intend to transfer to Lewis Clark State College should take BUSA 265 (Legal Environment of Business) and BUSA 271 (Statistical Inference and Decision Analysis); ENGL 272 (Business Writing); and LCSC's MIS 221 (Introduction to Computers and Information Systems), which is offered in Coeur d'Alene.
Completion of the following courses results in an associate degree. The associate degrees meet the general core requirements at the identified colleges and universities with the exception of Gonzaga University. The suggested coursework normally fulfills the first half of baccalaureate degree requirements in Business Administration. Course selection should be tailored to match requirements defined by intended transfer institutions.
