Program Objective

The primary objective of this major is to provide a managerially oriented program with sufficient communicative and mathematical skills, socially relevant course work, and options to develop a well-rounded and technically knowledgeable graduate.


The associate degree in Business Administration prepares students for careers in the business community. Students will develop written and oral communications skills; acquire contemporary computer skills; engage in active and collaborative learning; and develop team-building, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills.

The associate degree program is enhanced by the opportunity to re-enroll to the baccalaureate degree in Business at Penn State Shenango, as well as other Penn State campus locations where the degree is offered.

To accommodate the needs of our diverse student body, the degree program is offered days and evenings. This gives students the flexibility to pursue the degree on a part-time or full-time basis. The General Business Option is available to students at Penn State Shenango.
