This major is designed for students who are interested in careers in management and learning problem-solving skills that will enable them to make sound decisions within a changing business environment. The program emphasizes current practices and technical competence, which provides students with skills to organize, establish goals, and control activities. Each student´┐Żs background is complemented with basic business instruction in accounting, marketing, information systems, and finance. Because the Harrisburg area is the center of industry and economic development for south-central Pennsylvania, students are provided with many opportunities to experience the world of business.
