The Pathway to Business combines the liberal arts core with business courses that provide skills that can make students more productive in their current jobs and expand opportunities for new positions. Students are also prepared to transfer to four-year institutions to continue their education toward a baccalaureate degree in business or a related field.

The following are the course options for the Pathway to Business. Fifteen credit hours must be earned through the completion of the required courses and two elective courses field. Additional requirements: an overall GPA of at least 2.0; cumulative GPA of 2.0 for all pathway courses; completion of MAT 125 within the general “core” education requirements.

Please note that pathways are not majors or minors. Rather, they are a focused way to complete your elective requirements.
