The Business Administration Department at Bunker Hill Community College is a collegial, student-centered learning community dedicated to providing an innovative, creative, and relevant education in business disciplines to a diverse student population. We strive to maximize student success by placing graduates in a competitive position when seeking employment in a business environment or upon transfer to a four-year academic institution, ultimately empowering them to compete responsibly and successfully in a global business environment.

Concentration Overview

This concentration prepares students to transfer to four-year colleges or universities and major in business administration. A bachelor’s degree enhances the competitive status of students for entry into business-related fields, and prepares students for advanced degrees. The college has transfer articulation agreements with many four-year academic institutions in the area. Graduates of this concentration may qualify to transfer using benefits of MassTransfer to a four-year state college or University of Massachusetts campus. For current information on eligible programs, visit www.mass.edu/masstransfer. The department also encourages students to consult with their advisors concerning transfer requirements.

Career Outlook

Students’ potential careers vary depending upon the chosen major and include accounting, mid-level management, banking, finance, and insurance. Students must complete a bachelor’s degree as a minimum requirement for entry into these fields. Students may need to pursue graduate work, as well.

Upon Completion of this Concentration Graduates will be able to:

  • Describe the interaction of history, culture, literature, economics, and science as studied within a broad liberal arts curriculum.
  • Demonstrate competence in reading and writing/literacy skills and in the organization of critical thinking and problem solving behaviors.
