The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (BBACC) is an upper-division, professionally oriented business degree program designed for students who are seeking a broad-based, general preparation in business. It is available in residential and online delivery formats through collaboration with Penn State Online. The degree incorporates the theoretical underpinnings of core business disciplines, notably management, marketing, finance, and logistics, especially the small-business climates present across most of the Commonwealth. The degree focuses on the competencies that produce graduates who can think and write clearly, analyze and evaluate business data accurately, and collaborate with others effectively. The curriculum is consistent between the residential and online offerings and aims to meet standards for academic excellence.

Through the choice of an 18-credit option, students choose between concentrations in management or marketing. The degree is unique in its design, building learning around three disciplinary cores: a pre-degree core (19 credits), an intermediate core (24 credits), and an advanced core (12 credits).

The associate degree in business administration at Penn State articulates with the degree. Advanced-standing students from other accredited colleges or universities will be admitted only with specified grade-point averages established in accordance with University policy.

MANAGEMENT OPTION: This option provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for careers as general managers who are able to deal effectively with employees in twenty-first century workplace environments.

MARKETING OPTION: This option helps provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for careers involving sales, promotion, services, distribution, and planning for business and the public sector.
