Program emphasis

There are five curricular tracks ("concentrations") available to you within the business administration major:
  • Entrepreneurship prepares students to start a new venture, be a productive member of an innovative firm, assume responsibilities in a family business or become a productive manager in a growing business.
  • Finance has been developed specifically for students with career interests in corporate finance, the financial markets or in financial institutions.
  • Human Resource Management prepares students to be effective stewards of human capital through evidence-based practices in staffing, compensation, leadership and employer relations.
  • Leadership is available for students who are particularly interested in developing the skills to lead and influence others.
  • Technology and Operations Management is available for students who have an interest in technology and operations' increasing impact on the globalization of the world.

Hands-on learning experience

Join Enactus, where students organize teams, develop projects and compete in global competitions. Learn how to invest and earn profit through the Investment Club, a hands-on laboratory experience that creates an income stream providing funding for student organizations. You may even wish to travel to Europe and Russia with the International Business Institute!

Practical experience

Like many business students, you may opt to participate in internships which turn work experiences into learning opportunities and make connections between classroom theory and the "real world." Internships with nonprofit organizations offer a special opportunity to serve the community. Often internships lead directly to full-time career employment.

After graduation

Our graduates currently serve in small businesses, for corporate giants, in churches and parachurch organizations, in government and more. They are entrepreneurs, congressional staffers, salespersons, investment advisors, missionaries, and financial analysts in places from Wall Street to Europe, Central America, Russia, China and  Central Pennsylvania.
