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 accounting, 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.
The degree allows students throughout the Commonwealth to become familiar with the unique business environments of their local communities, a design that sets the degree apart from other business degrees offered both within the University and throughout the Commonwealth.
Opportunities are available for motivated students to become involved in collaborative research activities with business faculty members. See Undergraduate Research for descriptions of research activities.
