Ideal for students who want to receive a strong foundation in the basic areas of business.
The Business Administration Program leads to an Associate in Science (AS) degree, and offers options in Aviation Management and Healthcare Management. The Program is administered by the Business & Technology Department and it is designed to provide a solid foundation for transfer to a senior college. Students will receive a strong foundation in the basic areas of business (management, accounting, finance and marketing) and will complete an internship that will enable them to bridge the gap between classroom theory and practical applications in the business world, and provide valuable experience for choosing a career and subsequent fulltime employment.
Current Students Log in to the CUNY Portal to review your Degree Audit to find out what classes to take. Have questions about using Degree Audit?

Selecting Flexible Core Courses
The courses you should take to satisfy the Pathways Flexible Core depends upon many factors, including: schools you are considering transferring to, your academic strengths and interests, and credits that you have earned from previous colleges. It is also important to note that some Pathways Flexible Core courses will also satisfy LaGuardia’s Urban Study requirement.
We strongly recommend that you meet with a member of the advising team to decide together which courses would work best for you. Below a list of generally recommended courses based on course content and/or transferability:
World Cultures and Global Issues
U.S. Experience in its Diversity
Individual and Society
The following course sequence is recommended for new students. Current students should check their Degree Audit and the information below for recommended Flexible Core courses.

The Business administration program at LaGuardia is articulated with senior CUNY colleges. An articulation agreement outlines course credits from LaGuardia that will transfer to a four-year CUNY program. LaGuardia students majoring in Business Administration maximize the number of credits that transfer to four-year colleges such as Baruch and Queens College, where they pursue business degrees such as Business Administration, Finance and Marketing.
