About our Business Administration Associate of Arts degree

The Associate of Arts in Business Administration at CCD is designed for you to complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree and then transfer to a four-year institution to complete the remaining Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in business. This degree prepares you to transfer as a junior to a Colorado four-year college or university and to work in areas such as management, human resources, administration, economics, marketing, finance, accounting, healthcare administration and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are accelerated classes right for me?

Accelerated courses are designed with working adults in mind. However, the pace of an accelerated course is intense and you have a short time in which you must get your assignments done. Therefore, you may need to plan on reducing time spent with friends and family or participating in other work or recreational activities during that time period.

Will I still be able to work with an academic advisor while in an evening accelerated course?

Yes! There will be a Business Pathway academic advisor available between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday before class start time.

How often am I in class on weeknights and for how long?

You are in only one class each night, Monday through Thursday. Most classes will start at 5:30 p.m. and typically end at 8:20 p.m. or earlier.

Are accelerated classes still transferable?

Yes. These are the same required transferable classes that are taught in the traditional daytime program along with elective options.

Is financial assistance available in an accelerated program?

Yes, financial aid is available for those who qualify as they would for traditional programs.

Learn more about financial aid at CCD.

How soon can I realistically get through the program?

It’s possible to graduate in as little as 16 months if you attend spring, summer and fall terms. You may be able to complete the requirements sooner if you have previously earned college credits or if you qualify for prior learning assessments of life- and work experience. 7.5-week classes allow you to focus on one or two classes at a time in a more intensive learning environment and still take three or four classes in a 15-week term. Summer classes are 10-weeks in duration.
