The Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB) is designed for students who wish to become flexible business professionals, equipped to adapt to the ever-changing workplace of the future.

Overview

Our program enables students to develop an up-to-date general knowledge base in business administration and more. The program was designed with the advice of business leaders throughout the Commonwealth and teaches the professional skills that employers have identified in their most successful employees including:

  • Communicating effectively both orally and in writing
  • Understanding and applying basic business concepts
  • Understanding contemporary business technology
  • Ability to adapt quickly to new situations and effectively assume responsibility
  • Working in and leading teams
  • Seeking challenges and opportunities to excel

The BSB is specifically designed to enable you to meet these demands. Through traditional classroom instruction, active and collaborative learning, internships and practical experience, and technologically enhanced courses you will have the opportunity to develop these skills while you complete your theoretical preparation in the core business disciplines.
