The John L. Grove College of Business, established in 1971, is one of the premier business schools in the mid-Atlantic region. No matter a student's interest or career goals in the world of business, from corporate executive to accountant to financial planner to teacher, we can satisfy their educational and career needs. We offer a Master of Business Administration degree and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree as well as a number of certificate programs. The business programs at Shippensburg are relevant and challenging. We ask corporate executives, as members of the Grove College of Business Advisory Board and Councils, to help us plan programs that offer the preparation executives want and expect in their employees. Our BSBA degree program features a strong common business core, a concentration in a specific major, and a balanced liberal arts component. This business core covers subjects from all functional areas of business and gives a broad foundation of business knowledge. It enables students to change business majors within the first two years with no loss of credits and provides career flexibility upon graduation. The university participates in two major employment consortiums each year and hosts the Career Expo where students can talk to representatives from various businesses.
