The Business B.S. Degree at Keystone College is designed so that tomorrow’s business leader can gain the essential skills to be successful in a for-profit, non-profit, small business, or entrepreneurial setting. This flexible program creates opportunity for students to gain in-depth mastery of a technical specialty including such areas as:

The curriculum for the Business Administration A.S. Degree prepares students for transfer into quality Baccalaureate programs for advanced business study. Students develop strong mathematical skills and balance basic business studies with a wide choice of liberal arts courses. This background prepares students for eventual leadership roles in industry, business, and government.
Both of these programs can be taken online.
Internships and Experiential Learning Opportunities
Not all education happens in the classroom. Certain lessons can only be learned through direct hands-on experiences outside of the classroom with real world experiences in the field. Internships and other field experiences give students the opportunity to connect one-on-one with faculty, fellow students and other professionals. Students will acquire leadership and management skills, professional growth and personal fulfillment that can’t be gained in the classroom.
