: 006

This curriculum is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year college and major in general business, or a more specialized field of business such as finance, accounting, international business, marketing, or management. It also provides a solid foundation for students planning to major in economics or pre-law. Completion of all requirements for this curriculum will lead to the award of the AA degree in business. Note: Many credits earned in the management certificate requirements may not be applied toward an AA in business. Students should seek advice from a counselor.

Business students may be eligible for the Macklin Business Institute scholars program, a competitive honors program which includes seminars, special honors courses, mentoring, the possibility of an internship, and a scholarship. Students potentially interested in this program should take ECON 201 , ECON 202 , or ACCT 222  in the sophomore year. For more information on this program see this catalog, the Montgomery College website, or a counselor.
