Be ready to make a positive impact in your business career.
Focus on the latest skills and knowledge that successful employers want. The Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at California University of Pennsylvania ensures that you learn business fundamentals while specializing in the field of management to prepare you for an evolving business environment.
In the bachelor's degree in business administration program, you will complete business core courses for a strong foundation. In addition, you'll explore a discipline for in-depth study: Management is one of seven concentrations that give business students the opportunity to develop focused expertise.
Learn practical applications of management fundamentals.
Undergraduate business administration majors complete 27 credits in the management concentration. Specialized work in management examines such topics as organizational behavior, business ethics, international business and more. The Organization Theory and Design course, for instance, takes a macro-view approach to the study of organizations and their functioning organizational control, culture and ethics, decision-making processes, power and politics.
In the business administration program, you will also develop quantitative, critical thinking and analytical skills. Students graduate not only with a demonstrated competence in their subject area, but also with the ability and tools to apply that knowledge.
Business administration students are also encouraged to have a minor:
- Some students choose a business discipline other than their concentration.
- Other popular choices include psychology, communication studies, public relations, statistics, computer information systems, leadership, women's studies, Spanish and Arabic.
- Students also may choose to complete dual majors or dual degrees with international studies or math.
