The Associate in Pre-Business degree prepares students for entry-level business positions. The two-year curriculum provides students with the necessary general education and lower division business core courses that constitute a solid base for a bachelor’s degree in one of the many areas of business concentration, which include accounting, finance, management, marketing, real estate, and economics. Graduates who earn an Associate in Pre-Business and meet the admission requirements can transfer to one of three Bachelor of Business Administration degrees (General Business, Marketing, or Information Systems) offered through NMSU Online.
