• Academics
  • Business and Technology


    Queens is a vital player in the New York City economy and also supports a dynamic, thriving business scene of its own, so it’s no surprise that Business and Technology is one of the largest areas of study at LaGuardia Community College.

    There are 14 majors and 1 certificate program offered in Business and Technology. These degrees combine core requirements, business and technology coursework, and liberal arts electives to maximize your academic experience and allow you to explore before continuing a concentration.

    LaGuardia graduates who have planned their education carefully can often transfer to four-year institutions as juniors. Meet regularly with a LaGuardia academic advisor and visit the Office of Transfer Services to plan for your graduation and transfer.
