Developing a foundation is critical to success in business. A business’s ability to thrive is based on every person having the understanding to perform their tasks efficiently. By receiving a degree in business administration, you can begin to take ownership of your professional career and help your future organization achieve its goals.

If you decide to get a degree in business administration, you will be gaining a baseline understanding of the important skills that are essential to success in a professional setting. These skills will be able to transfer and elevate you when entering into your Bachelor’s level program. You will have a strong foundation that will help you pick up on more complex concepts as you advance through your academic career.

What is a Business Administration (Pre) degree?

Business Administration (Pre) is an online associate degree program that focuses on the basic curriculum needed for the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in business. The program is transfer-oriented and is ideal for the student who is considering a bachelor’s degree, but who wishes to pursue the first two years in an online environment. This program is designed so students can earn their Associate of the Arts degree and transition seamlessly into the Carl H. Lindner College of Business (LCoB) at the University of Cincinnati or transfer to another Bachelor of Business Administration program.
