Capitol letter M to designate a milestone course Designates a Milestone course. A milestone course must be completed in the semester indicated to ensure that you remain on track to continue on in your program and graduate on time.

Each transfer college or university has their own Mathematics requirement for a Business/Management bachelor's degree. Students are encouraged to research the business curriculum at the colleges/universities they would like to apply to, to see what is the appropriate mathematics course to take at CCCC. The Mathematics course to take at CCCC to prepare for transfer to some of our state universities is below.

  • University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth requires MAT165 Finite Mathematics.
  • Bridgewater State University, Westfield State University, University of Massachusetts-Boston, and University of Massachusetts-Lowell prefer MAT175 College Algebra as a minimum requirement (more may be required when you transfer).
  • University of Massachusetts-Amherst requires MAT180 Applied Calculus at CCCC for acceptance into the Isenberg School of Management.

Upon successful completion of the A.S. Business Administration Program, students are able to:

  • Transfer to a four-year institution with a concentration in Business
  • Apply management theories in a dynamic and multicultural world
  • Make decisions through the use of technology
  • Recognize and analyze ethical issues as they relate to business
  • Apply quantitative problem solving techniques to evaluate management decisions
  • Demonstrate the ability to work in a team
  • Read, write, discuss and think critically about business topics.

The student completing Business Administration Program is encouraged to transfer to a four-year institution to earn a bachelor's degree in Accounting, Information Systems, Management, Marketing and Public Administration.

Some four-year institutions of Business require Business Calculus I (Applied Calculus) and Business Calculus II, Finite Mathematics, and Statistics. Course requirements at transfer institutions vary greatly and need to be carefully considered with an advisor.
