Full-time with no transfer credit, it will take you five semesters (under two years) to complete the associate degree including summer semesters. Attending part-time with no transfer credit you can expect to complete the associate degree in two years.
Summer semester for the Associate Business Management program means a semester similar to fall and spring semester in duration and credits is required to graduate within two years.
Choosing the best program for you depends on your long-term goals and priorities. If your goal is to pursue an online concentrated course of study in Marketing or Finance, then the Associate in Pre-Business and eventually the Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration – Marketing or Business Administration – Finance is probably the better option. The Pre-Business program requires quantitative courses such as six semester hours of both Calculus and Business Analytics. If your goal earning a degree which focuses on areas such as administration, communication, and information technology, then the Bachelor of Technical and Applied Studies (BTAS) program would be a better fit.
If you want to start your own business, both options are great. The BTAS program requires fewer quantitative courses such as the Calculus and Business Analytics courses mentioned above.
What is asynchronous online learning? Fully asynchronous courses allow you flexibility in your schedule. Once enrolled in a program, you may view instructional materials when it works best for you as long as you meet course deadlines. There is no live video lecture component for this type of learning.

Once enrolled, you’ll use tools like Canvas and meet with your Student Success Coordinator on a regular basis to ensure you’re on track to graduate. Learn more about the UC Online experience in the video below.
