Transfer your existing credits and gain a broad knowledge of business practices.

Do you want to gain a general knowledge of business practices? Do you have credits in a non- business area? The new Bachelor of Science degree in General Business will provide students with the background needed to make confident, successful decisions in today’s competitive marketplace. Students will gain a general understanding of the foundations of accounting, business information systems, finance, management and marketing through a comprehensive curriculum.

This transfer-friendly degree is designed for students who have existing credits that count towards any four-year degree. This program accepts credits from any Associates degree earned from a community college in Texas, giving students the opportunity to change their degree plan without having to start their college experience from the beginning again.

This exciting new degree will prepare you to work in a variety of roles including:

  • Human resources
  • Management
  • Marketing
  • Operations

With course options in economics, data analytics, finance, and professional development, you will receive all the tools you need to successfully navigate your future. In addition to gaining the general business knowledge you need from the classroom, you will also be directed to take an internship as part of your degree plan. Internships provide real-world experiences to help make valuable industry connections for life after college. Since the internship is for-credit, you will have some required assignments as part of your internship, including:

  • Creating learning objectives
  • Completing an evaluation at the end of the semester
  • Reporting time (at least once a semester)
  • Writing a paper at the end of the semester (some faculty may also require students to report back more often)

The Internship and Career Resource Center at the college will serve as a valuable tool to use during the internship process. The Center partners with hundreds of prospective employers, some of which include:
