The Bachelor 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.
Options available at Abington:
- Financial Services
- Health Services
- Individualized Course of Study
In addition to the Accounting option that is offered within the Bachelor of Science in Business general degree, Penn State Abington also offers a separate Bachelor of Science in Accounting major.
Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Business Challenge, a hands-on, problem-solving opportunity to work on teams and learn from real world business leaders.
Business students have the opportunity to participate in ENACTUS, an international non-profit organization that brings together students, faculty, and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need.
