Business Administration A.S. Online Degree Program

Queensborough's NEW Fully Online Degree Program

Business Department
Administration Building, Room A-405

Associate Professor Nina Sarkar, Program Director

The Department of Business at Queensborough Community College (QCC) offers a fully online degree program in Business Administration. The program is designed for working adults who are returning to college to earn a degree. All students are welcome in the program.

The academic requirements for the degree program are identical to those for the traditional A.S. in Business. The main difference is that the courses for the program are offered in a fully online, asynchronous format. Students can take courses from home and do not have to attend online lectures.

The program is fully transferable to many bachelor's degree programs in the New York City area. Queensborough also has a transfer agreement with CUNY's School of Professional Studies (SPS). That arrangement will allow QCC graduates to pursue a B.S. in Business at SPS fully online.


Students in the online program must:

  1. Have a reliable computer and internet access. Students are responsible for purchasing and maintaining a computer and internet access. Technical assistance with campus software is available from the college.

  2. Be willing and able to work independently on the courses. Online courses provide students with a lot of freedom, but they also require students to keep up with the work. Online courses are not “easier” and require at least the same amount of work as traditional, in person courses.

  3. Complete a “Getting Ready for Online Learning” workshop before they start taking online courses in the program. Details on this fully online workshop will be provided to students when they enroll in the program. Get familiar with online courses by completing an introduction to Blackboard Course offered by the Office of Educational Technologies.

Current Queensborough students can switch their major degree program to Business Administration online by speaking with their Adviser or the Business Academy Lead Adviser, Ms. Natalie Roopchand or the Program Director, Professor Nina Sarkar. Current students must not have earned more than 30 college credits and must be in good academic standing to be admitted to the program.

  3. Be provided with transfer advising so that they can transition to a bachelor's degree program that fits their needs without delay.
