Business Transfer Option, A.A.


The Business Administration Department at Bunker Hill Community College is a collegial, student-centered learning community dedicated to providing an innovative, creative, and relevant education in business disciplines to a diverse student population. We strive to maximize student success by placing graduates in a competitive position when seeking employment in a business environment or upon transfer to a four-year academic institution, ultimately empowering them to compete responsibly and successfully in a global business environment.

This concentration prepares students to transfer to four-year colleges or universities and major in business administration. A bachelor’s degree enhances the competitive status of students for entry into business-related fields, and prepares students for advanced degrees. The college has transfer articulation agreements with many four-year academic institutions in the area. Graduates of this concentration may qualify to transfer using benefits of MassTransfer to a four-year state college or University of Massachusetts campus.
