Accelerated Business information session slated for June 25

Penn State Berks will hold an information session for its Accelerated Business degree program from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 25, in Room 109, Franco Building. 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 and 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 grade-point average of 3.0 or higher may be able to apply some of the credits earned toward the master of business administration degree offered at Penn State Berks.
