Program - Liberal Arts: Business Transfer

Liberal Arts - Business
Students planning to pursue a Business degree at a four-year institution follow the Liberal Arts program requirements while at Kirkwood, completing general education and elective courses that prepare them for transfer. Selected Business courses can apply toward elective requirements needed for the Associate of Arts degree.

Academic Advising: Students interested in studying Business work with the Advising and Transfer Center staff for course selection. Kirkwood has articulation agreements with all three state universities and many other four-year institutions in the state, including a 2+2 agreement with the University of Iowa. It is recommended that you work closely with your advisor to ensure that you are aware of specific requirements for the institution you will attend, such as math, foreign language, laboratory science, diversity and grade point average.

Support from the Department: Business department faculty and staff are available to discuss specific courses, independent study and honors projects.

Scholarships: Kirkwood awards scholarships designated for Business students in the areas of Accounting, Apparel Merchandising, Banking & Finance, Business & Office Administration, Graphic Communication, Information & LAN Technology, Management and Marketing. Recipients are chosen through the Kirkwood Scholarships process. To view the process, click here.

Transfer Plan: To transfer to a four-year college or university and major in Business there, complete the Kirkwood Liberal Arts A.A. degree. Fulfilling electives with credits in accounting, management, and other courses suggested by your advisor provides opportunities to explore the discipline of Business, build your resume, and prepare for transfer.
