Getting Down to Business with The Pennsylvania Institute of Technology!

If you’re looking to change careers, advance in your current position or reenter the job market, then you are the ideal candidate for The Pennsylvania Institute of Technology’s associate degree in Business Administration.

This is the perfect time to take stock of your future in an environment that will train you, foster your self-esteem and give you the tools you will need for future success.
Why Business Administration?
To be successful today, every job involves knowledge of the business process. Business Administration refers to those processes that are required to run businesses in today’s complex environment.

Understanding the way a business runs will give you a competitive advantage in obtaining a job, or in growing in your current career.
Learning through experience.
Knowledge is obtained not just through the classroom experience, but from actually doing the job. At P.I.T. we attempt to provide as many hands on learning opportunities as possible. This hands on teaching process is known as Experiential Learning.

Experiential Learning includes tools such as:
  • Real-world interaction with local businesses. You don’t just learn about business, you work with businesses to help them to solve their everyday business problems.
  • Developing a real business plan for launching a new business.
  • Case studies that put the student into the seats of major corporate executives in finding solutions to their corporate problems.
Career Opportunities?
P.I.T. has modeled its Business Administration Program after the four year programs at many of the major business schools in the area. This makes your two year associates degree fully transferable to those who successfully complete their courses.

This creates the opportunity for you to complete your bachelor’s degree and work in all areas of business including;
  • Human Resources
  • Marketing
  • Advertising
  • Finance
  • Accounting
Where can I go after P.I.T.?
P.I.T. launches you into a world of opportunity! You can transfer your associate degree credits to a four-year college or university to pursue your bachelor of science degree. You can start working in your field right after graduation. You can work in your field and pursue your degree part-time. P.I.T. will prepare you for the next step that’s right for YOU.
