Business Administration

The Business  Studies department at Midland College provides programs and courses that prepare students for entry level positions in business industries, and careers in management and administration positions. These courses prepare students for the private, nonprofit, and public sectors of business. Two academic pathway options are available; that which transfers to senior colleges/universities and that which transfers to Midland College’s Bachelor of Applied Technology in Organizational Management.

For students planning to transfer from Midland College to a senior college for their Bachelor’s degree and who meet the requirement for a degree, an Associate of Arts degree in General Studies with Business Administration emphasis will be awarded. It is strongly recommended and encouraged that students contact their Pathways Advisor for assistance with course selection if they plan to transfer.

After completing the 60 hours of transferable credits, students should be able to transfer to any senior college as a Junior and complete their business courses, earning a Bachelor’s degree in business. Areas of specialization, such as accounting or finance, may require additional coursework which is determined by the college receiving the transfer. Midland College has articulation agreements with a variety of schools to assist our students with their transfer. Specific business areas of academic training include business principles, accounting, economics and business computer applications.


Students choosing this academic pathway may receive funding and other financial assistance and support from Workforce Solutions. See, call (432) 287-5200 (option 5), or open the flyer for information on the services they provide in partnership with Midland College. The Workforce Solutions office is located on Midland College's main campus, in room 138 of the Technology Center (TC) Building.
