Fully Online Degrees at Montgomery College

Graduation Day PhotoBeginning in the fall 2014 semester, Montgomery College will offer for the first time fully online degrees in both Business and Information Systems.

The online programs will follow the same curriculum as the traditional degree programs, which are listed below. The courses are taught by the College’s expert faculty who have been trained and certified in online Quality Assurance.

Montgomery College’s online learners have the convenience of using the College’s e-resources to support their studies or can come to any of our campuses to use the physical academic support centers, libraries, advising services, and more.


A.A. in Business​ (006)

This curriculum is designed for students planning to transfer to a four-year college and major in general business or a more specialized field of business such as finance, accounting, international business, marketing, or management. It also provides a solid foundation for students planning to major in economics or pre-law. Completion of all requirements for this curriculum will lead to the award of the A.A. degree in business.  Note: Many credits earned in the management certificate requirements may not be applied toward an A.A. in Business.  Students should seek advice from a counselor.

Business students may be eligible for the Macklin Business Institute scholars program, a competitive honors program which includes seminars, special honors courses, mentoring, the possibility of an internship, and a scholarship. Students potentially interested in this program should take ECON 201, ECON 202, or ACCT 222 in the sophomore year. For more information on this program see this catalog, the Montgomery College website, or a counselor.
