Online business degree boosts career prospects

Responding to the needs of learners throughout the state and beyond, Oregon State this fall will launch a bachelor's program online in business administration that will position profession-ready students for successful careers.

The program is offered by the College of Business and focuses on innovation, entrepreneurship and experiential learning. Students will gain the business acumen to make an immediate impact as professionals, and they'll have networking opportunities with employers and recruiters that lead to internships and jobs.
