The Baccalaureate of Science in Business (BSB) is an upper-division, professionally oriented business degree for individuals who are seeking general preparation in business.
The degree combines the theoretical underpinnings of core business disciplines, notably management, marketing, finance, and logistics, with applied study in a practical setting, especially the small-business climates across most of the Commonwealth.
Through the choice of an 18-credit option, students develop a specialty related to a key business sector. Students also develop written and oral communication skills throughout the program, acquire contemporary computer skills, and engage in active and collaborative learning.
The associate degree in business administration at Penn State articulates with this degree. Advanced-standing students from other accredited colleges or universities will be admitted only with specified grade-point averages established annually in accordance with University policy.
There are two Major Options to choose from:
We also have an interdisciplinary Business Minor designed to introduce students to a variety of fundamental business skills and knowledge available.
For the B.S. degree in Business, a minimum of 122 credits is required, 15 of which must be at the 400 level.
