“The Berks-Lehigh Valley College of Penn State University provides much more for students than getting a Bachelor’s Degree. The faculty consists of individuals who are devoted to teaching the necessary fundamental business skills, but more importantly, they are committed to fully preparing students to succeed in the business world. Many of the professors use personal experiences as illustrations during class to help students understand business concepts. I believe that the ability of the professors to encourage and motivate students played a vital role in my success as well as the success of my colleagues. Additionally, the college offers a flexible class schedule, which enabled me to continue to work full-time during the day and take classes in the evening. Penn State Berks-Lehigh Valley is a great college, is committed to the idea of life-long learning and is filled with great opportunities for students of all ages and of all walks of life."

"Attending the Berks-Lehigh Valley BSB Program was an excellent experience.  Personally, I liked the small class sizes because they allowed for more interaction. The faculty and staff make it a point to get to know you; they truly care about you and your goals. A few of the key skills that I learned and use continuously are how to successfully work in teams, and how to
present and communicate effectively. Through the BSB Program, I learned a lot about business, but most importantly I learned a lot about myself."
