Accelerated Business Information Session scheduled for May 20

Penn State Berks will hold an online information session for its Accelerated Business degree program on Tuesday, May 20, 2014, from noon ? 1:00 p.m. Attendees will learn more about how to complete 60+ business credits toward the bachelor's degree in Business in a 20-month, accelerated Saturday program.

The Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB) program differs from many traditional programs in that it is based on a "systems thinking" and study approach that prepares students as workforce participants, equipped with multi-faceted skills applicable to any number of business areas and situations. The curriculum focuses on management, marketing, emphasizing leadership, ethics, and strategic thinking across the curriculum. The program stresses interpersonal and technical communications skills, collaborative student-centered learning, and a high degree of faculty-student interaction. In addition, students with a GPA of 3.0 or higher may be able to apply some of the credits earned toward the MBA offered at Penn State Berks.
