The Finance program provides a course of study which readily transfers to most four-year colleges and universities. College courses permit completion of the equivalent of the first two years of a bachelor's degree in many four-year colleges. The general education courses completed for the program are useful whether you continue your formal education at a four-year college or enter the workforce. The program is a useful beginning if you plan to get a professional degree in finance, banking, securities or other related disciplines.
If you plan to transfer to a four-year college, select courses to satisfy requirements of the specific institution to which you intend to transfer. Consult your advisor at that specific institution any time you have questions about course selection.
