Business Administration


This curriculum provides an opportunity to achieve an Associate in Science Degree in Business Administration for Transfer to the California State University System (CSU) while completing the first and second year requirements for transfer to a four-year institution.  A baccalaureate degree is recommended preparation for those considering professional careers in business.  Completion of this curriculum will demonstrate commitment to the field and provide comprehensive preparation for upper-division work.  This program is designed specifically for the California State University system.  Each CSU school, however, reserves a right to accept students with the AS-T degree into some (not all) specific specialization under the B.S./B.A. in Business Administration.  Lower Division requirements for the University of California system and private four-year colleges vary by transfer school.  Please see a counselor for transfer requirements for other institutions. 

Students who intend to transfer must meet all current transfer requirements including minimum GPA.  Students are strongly advised to meet with a counselor to discuss transfer requirements and lower division major preparation that is needed for their intended transfer school. 

Any student wishing to transfer to the CSU system to earn a B.S. degree in any field of Business Administration should follow this pattern: (1) Certificate in Business Transfer from Chabot, (2) AST in Business Administration from Chabot, (3) B.S./B.A. in Business Administration from any four-year school.

Each campus limits specializations within Business into which you can transfer.  Click here to see the list.  Upon transfer, you can apply for a change of specialization.
