Advance your career

Gain the knowledge and skills you need to advance in your current career, chart a new direction for yourself or pursue your particular interest in core areas of business, including human resources, accounting, economics, finance, law and marketing. In classes with busy, working adults just like yourself, you'll explore key areas such as organizational behavior, business ethics, communication strategies, and decision-making models. You'll improve your skills in critical thinking, problem solving, presentation and communication as you apply business theory to management practice and acquire the academic foundation for future graduate work.

Courses begin every eight weeks

The time required to complete your degree depends on the number of courses you take each term, which you can determine according to your personal and professional responsibilities. With new courses beginning at Curry every eight weeks, your progress can be as fast or as flexible as you choose.

Courses offered in hybrid and online formats

To model the real world organizational practice of using technology in daily communication, the core required business administration courses are delivered in both fully online or hybrid formats. Hybrid courses combine face-to-face and online learning: some may alternate weeks meeting in-class, and others may meet weekly for a shorter period of time. Fully online courses are as described, FULLY ONLINE with no in-class meetings. Regardless of the format, you will discover that hybrid learning brings more flexibility to your academic schedule, while providing you the opportunity to personally meet your faculty and peers to strengthen your academic, social and professional networks. 

Make the most of your transfer credits and work experience

Curry helps you fast-track your degree completion by offering:

  • Transfer credits for courses completed at other colleges - with no time limit on transfer credits, including science courses. At least 30 credits must be completed at Curry College to earn a degree.
  • College credit for equivalent education and relevant work experience.
  • College credit for a passing score on CLEP, DANTES or Regents examinations.

No Application fee required

Curry has no application fee, and you can enroll in most continuing education courses while you're compiling the application materials. Once complete, we promptly review your materials and mail an acceptance letter to you. If you apply for financial aid, Curry's Student Financial Services Office will notify you after you are accepted about eligibility for a financial aid award.
