Business Administration A.S. Online Degree Program (BT1)

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.
