Business Administration Transfer Degree

The Associate in Science Business Administration transfer degree allows students to complete the first two years of a bachelor degree in business before transferring to a university. Most of the courses completed are general education requirements and electives, as well as a few core business courses. Students who major in Business Administration wait to declare their specialized business major, i.e., marketing, management, accounting, finance, computer information systems, at the junior level after transferring to their chosen university.

This degree allows for a seamless transfer to state universities in Illinois. The success of our transfer degrees rests on Lake Land’s relationships with universities. We carefully articulate all curriculum, which allows for a seamless transfer. Students are assigned a faculty advisor who works closely with them to ensure that they take the correct courses for transfer to their chosen university.

This degree provides quality instruction at a fraction of the cost of a university. In addition, classroom sizes at Lake Land are smaller than freshman and sophomore lecture classes at large universities. This allows the students to gain valuable attention from the instructors, who genuinely care about their students. In addition, in follow-up transfer reports, our students perform as well or better academically than native university students during their junior and senior years of instruction.

Business Education Transfer Degree

The Associate in Science-Business Education transfer degree allows students to complete the first two years of a bachelor degree in business education before transferring to a university.  A business education degree prepares a student for a career in secondary education teaching business subjects such as general business, accounting, consumer economics, keyboarding, computer applications, graphic design, or web applications.  Because the students complete several business courses, as well as education courses, they are well-suited for a career in either business or business education.

Like the Business Administration degree, this degree also allows for a seamless transfer to state universities in Illinois.  Additionally, the curriculum features general education requirements and electives, as well as a few core business courses.  Students are assigned a faculty advisor who works closely with them to ensure that they take the correct courses for transfer to their chosen university.  See program requirements.
