Bachelor of Science in Business (BSB) Program

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.



Accounting focuses on the development and interpretation of financial information critical to managerial decision-making. This option prepares students to pursue careers in business with an emphasis on the areas of financial and managerial accounting, systems and controls, auditing, and taxation. The Accounting Option prepares students for a wide range of careers, including corporate controller, treasurer, budget director, auditor, tax planner and consultant. The Accounting option provides students with a foundation in intermediate accounting, managerial accounting, taxation, information systems and auditing.

Management and Marketing

This option prepares students to pursue careers in business organizations with an emphasis on the skills and knowledge necessary for the business professional to function in community and regional centers of commerce. The Management and Marketing option’s dual emphasis allows students to select courses in both disciplines as a foundation for leading small businesses or units of large organizations. Courses in the option include human resource management, leadership, international management, retailing, global marketing, market research, communications and ethics.


Individualized Option

This option provides the opportunity for students to pursue an approved business-focused interdisciplinary program of study. Students pursuing the Individualized option have paired business with information sciences and technology, hotel and restaurant management, professional writing, and other course work, to pursue studies focused on their unique interests and/or career plans.

All the options include courses that emphasize oral and written communication; active and collaborative learning; team-building; critical-thinking; and problem-solving skills. Students also participate in a capstone experience, choosing to conduct an undergraduate research project, participate in a collaborative project in business, or pursue professional experience through an internship.

Penn State’s associate degree in business administration articulates with the bachelor’s degree. The college also has transfer guides with a number of community colleges, allowing students with an associate degree in Business to efficiently transfer credits into Penn State York’s Bachelor of Science in Business program. The BSB program is offered days and evenings to meet the needs of both traditional and adult learners.
