Business Administration


The Business Department recommends starting your path towards a 4-year degree by earning this certificate.  The certificate is developed to prepare students for further study of business.  All courses within the program are required for the AS-T in Business Administration.  The curriculum also completes more than a half of the undergraduate business major requirements for CSU transfer.

A student wishing to transfer to the CSU system to earn a B.S./B.A. degree in any field of Business Administration should follow this pattern: (1) Certificate in Business Transfer from Chabot, (2) AS-T degree in Business Administration from Chabot, (3) B.S./B.A. in Business Administration from a CSU campus of your choice.
