The two-year, college-level academic Business Administration major is designed to provide instruction in business administration that fulfills the requirements of various levels of responsibility higher than those held by high school graduates.

The primary objective of this major is to provide a managerially oriented program with sufficient communicative and mathematical skills, socially relevant course work, and options composed of advanced courses in specific business specialties to develop a well-rounded and technically knowledgeable graduate. Five options are available to the student: Accounting, General Business, Management, Management Information Systems, and Marketing. Not all options are available at every Penn State campus. At Penn State Schuylkill, the General Business option is available.

Graduates of the Business Administration major may qualify for admission to the baccalaureate degree majors in Behavioral Science, Business Administration, Humanities, or Public Policy offered at Penn State Harrisburg. They also may qualify for admission to the baccalaureate degree majors in Accounting, Business Economics, General Business, Management, or Management Information Systems offered at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.

For the Associate in Science degree in Business Administration, a minimum of 68 credits is required.
