Business Administration Transfer

  • Overview

The Business Administration Transfer (BAT) degree is the most popular program in GCC’s Business and Information Technology Department. This program provides the necessary courses for transfer to baccalaureate degree business administration programs, covering all the basic business disciplines as well as general education courses required by four-year business colleges. BAT graduates report feeling well-prepared for academic success upon transferring—thanks to GCC’s rigorous preparation in the context of small class sizes and close faculty/student interaction. Students can earn one of three “stackable” career certificates on the way to earning their degree!
