Business Administration

Program Overview

The A.S. Degree in Business Administration program includes instruction in management theory, economics, marketing, business decision-making, accounting and several general education goal areas. Within the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum, the general education components of the Business Administration program will transfer to other colleges and universities. The business-focused courses do not fall under the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum; however, the likelihood of transferability is strong. Pine Technical College has created several articulation agreements with other four-year colleges in the Business Administration program. An articulation agreement is a guarantee between a two-year and four-year college that complete transfer of the two-year degree into a four-year program will occur.
