1. How long will it take me to complete this degree?

If the student can attend day classes and follow the curriculum outlined in the program, the student should be able to finish the degree in two years. If the student can only attend classes at night, or if the student needs to take several developmental classes, then it will realistically take 3-4 years to complete the degree.

2. Will I be able to find a job locally with this major?

More than 95% of the graduates from our program are able to find satisfactory employment. Our graduates are now working in business-centered jobs with employers such as the local banks, public schools, the hospital, the university, local government, as well as here at RCC.

3. I hear that the business administration program has lots of really hard courses like accounting and economics. How does the typical student perform in this program?

No matter what program of study a student chooses to pursue, she or he must be committed to dedicating adequate time and effort towards understanding new and unfamiliar subject matter. Most students who have a genuine interest in a business-related career and who fully apply themselves perform adequately in this program; there is a strong correlation between the degree of effort a student applies to learning the material and her/his success in the classes. The coursework is sometimes demanding in that success requires students to do a lot of reading and develop a good understanding of math.
