Associate of Business Administration (ABA)

ABA program

Southern States University’s Associate of Business Administration is a two-year degree program that provides students with an academic foundation built upon general education and business courses at the lower-division level.

The lower division introductory general education courses are designed to promote skills in critical-thinking, writing, reading, and communications in addition to the basic use of computers. Specifically, the program provides students with a basic knowledge and understanding of the humanities, arts, math, sciences, and social sciences; while the lower division introductory business courses are designed to provide students with a basic knowledge and understanding of business fundamentals and practices.

The program is structured so that success in the lower division courses will improve the student’s confidence and ability to succeed in the more challenging and focused upper division courses if a student wishes to transfer into a bachelor’s program. This foundation in the program allows a graduate to explore a career in business. Successful completion of the program requires 90 Quarter Credits.
