    The Business Administration, Associate of Science degree program is a fully online career-oriented program designed to give the adult learner practical business knowledge and skills. However, some courses are offered in person at our four locations for those who prefer the in-class format. The curriculum includes coursework in accounting, management, economics, and computer science. In keeping with the Catholic Franciscan liberal arts tradition, additional coursework includes 24 credits of general education requirements in humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and religious studies providing the student with a broad-based educational experience designed to enhance their skills as professionals in the contemporary business world.

    Students who graduate with an Associate of Science degree in Business Administration are eligible to enter the workforce at entry-level positions. After obtaining the associate degree, many adult learners will continue their studies at Saint Francis University to earn a Bachelor of Science degree.
