Portland State University’s (PSU) School of Business Administration (SBA) is launching more online undergraduate degrees in 2014: a bachelor’s business degree in supply and logistics management and a certificate program in social entrepreneurship. This is in addition to the online bachelor’s business degree in management and leadership, online master’s degree in global supply chain management and online certificate programs in the business of craft brewing and the athletic and outdoor industry, all of which are launching in Fall 2013.

“About half of the undergraduates in the School of Business Administration (SBA) work full time –- a higher percentage than any other school at the University,” said School of Business Dean Scott Dawson. “Having more online offerings is part of our effort to meet students where they are -– to be more responsive to the consumer,” he said.

Additions to SBA’s online offerings is part of a larger effort by the School to offer more specialized online programs. The programs are designed to be high tech + high touch with a learner-centric approach that emphasizes faculty-student engagement by applying today's tools to the teaching and learning environment, such as Google Hangouts.

"Our leadership team does a great job assessing and implementing niche online programs to meet the demands of the business community," said Samad Hinton, director of online business education at the business school. "It’s thrilling to see the SBA continue to develop programs that make a degree in higher education more accessible for both Oregonians and under-served communities throughout the world."
