You can transfer as a business major to all Washington state schools by finishing the requirements for an associate of arts and sciences degree and taking specified business, economics and math courses. It is essential that you work with a business transfer adviser to ensure proper course sequencing.
Business administration, economics and accounting graduates can pursue careers in accounting, advertising, finance, management, marketing, retailing and other fields. Opportunities are available in the private sector or in government agencies. A bachelor's degree in this area is also good preparation for graduate school or for those wishing to become certified public accountants.
Since programs differ slightly at every university, WVC students should carefully follow the program outlined by the four-year college or university to which they plan to transfer. It is best to complete the listed general education requirements and as many of the following premajor courses as possible while at Wenatchee Valley College. Students transferring without a degree should see their adviser or a WVC counselor for up-to-date transfer information. The following courses are generally accepted and/or required at all Washington state schools of business:
• BUSA 204 Introduction to Law (WVC elective) • BUSA 251 Financial Accounting I (WVC elective) • BUSA 252 Financial Accounting II (WVC elective) • BUSA 253 Managerial Accounting (WVC elective) • ECON 201 Introductory Microeconomics • ECON 202 Introductory Macroeconomics (may use one economics class as WVC social science and one as WVC elective) • MATH 105 College Algebra* or MATH 120 Precalculus I: Algebra (WVC quantitative skills) • MATH 201 Statistical Analysis (WVC natural science) Recommended and/or required at selected Washington state schools of business (see adviser): • MATH 115 Elements of Calculus or MATH 124 Calculus/Analytical Geometry I • MATH 200 Finite Math *Students who don't meet course requirements should take a prerequisite class or classes based on ASSET placement scores.
