Pre-Business Administration

What is Pre-Business Administration?

Business administration is the study of general business principles and practices. It covers accounting, finance, marketing, operations management and information systems. More than specific academic subjects, it also teaches leadership, strategy and economics, tax issues, quality assurance, risk awareness, workforce dynamics, entrepreneurship and ethics as applied to local, national, international and global business concerns.

This program provides you with the first two years toward completion of a bachelor’s degree in business.

Success Factors

You should be analytical, detail-oriented, flexible, decisive and have good communication skills.

Career Possibilities

The jobs open to you will depend on the major you select for your bachelor’s degree.

If you become an accounting major, for example, you may pursue a career as certified public accountant, Internal Revenue Service agent, tax consultant or financial executive.

If your choice is management, consider the many professional careers in personnel administration or any managerial or staff position that deals with "people problems" in organizations.

If you major in marketing, you can become a marketing researcher and analyst, sales director or manager, product manager, advertising director or retail merchandising specialist.

Organizations offering you a professional career as a finance major include commercial banks, insurance companies, securities dealers and brokers, and the financial departments of industrial and public utility corporations.

Minoring in Pre-Business Administration

You cannot minor in pre-business administration.

If you are enrolled in a two-year transitional degree program, you will spend most of your room time acquiring the foundational courses for your four-year bachelor's degree. Generally, you will select your minor when you transfer to your four-year institution.

UC Advantages and Special Opportunities

The UC Clermont College campus is on 92 wooded acres located in Batavia, Ohio, in the heart of Clermont County. We are relatively small and our faculty-to-student ratio is low. You will find small size and personal interaction with your instructors create the ideal learning environment. Parking is convenient and at no additional charge. Plus, our tuition is the lowest of the UC colleges.

Our faculty includes professionals with significant experience in the business world. Active advisory committees help assure the relevance of lectures and teaching exercises. The diversity of the student population - in age, work experience and background - heightens the value of room discussions.
