The General Business Transfer program has been designed to meet the MassTransfer requirements of the Massachusetts public universities and UMASS system, or those colleges that are accredited by the AACSB (American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business).
This program may be preferred by those wishing a greater mix of liberal arts, math and science courses. A total of 34 credits of such courses are required as compared to 21 to 24 credits in the College's other Business programs. In addition, if you desire to transfer to a public state college or university that requires its incoming juniors to meet the Gen Ed Foundation (formerly, MassTransfer Block), then you should consider following this program. This curriculum meets the requirements for the MassTransfer A2B Pathway in Business. (For more information about MassTransfer benefits, please visit www.stcc.edu/transfer.)
*Please note that this program is a specially designed transfer program and not meant for all transfer students. You should consult with your advisor or the college's transfer counselor to decide which of the programs would best meet your transfer needs. This program is offered in an online option.
Upon the successful completion of requirements for this program, the degree of Associate in Science in Business Administration will be awarded.
