Business Administration Transfer to Montana State University - Northern

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: All Programs of Study Alphabetical

Business Administration

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 fields.

Completion of the following courses results in an associate degree. The associate degree meets the lower division general education core requirements at The University of Montana - Missoula, Montana State University - Billings, Montana State University - Bozeman, Montana State University - Northern, and most other four-year institutions. 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.

The Associate of Science (AS) degree requires 60 credits at FVCC, and the Bachelor of Science (BS) degree at Montana University System (MUS) colleges and universities requires 120 credits. FVCC students may earn as many as 75-85 credits in preparation for some transfer majors, thus reducing the number of credits required for the BS degree at MUS schools. Also, by earning the AS degree from FVCC, students will have satisfied the lower division General Education Core (see General Education Requirements  for requirements) for all MUS institutions and will not be required to meet additional lower division general education core requirements upon transfer. The suggested course load in AS programs is rigorous and is recommended for only the most prepared students. A more moderate semester credit load can be achieved by taking general education core courses during summer terms or completing one or two additional semesters at FVCC before transfer.

The information on all transfer programs is subject to change. Students should see their advisor to explore other possibilities not specifically listed in the program.
