UPJ adds business division

Pitt-Johnstown has launched of a Division of Business and Enterprise.

The new division, developed by the faculty in response to a need identified by students, alumni and employers, is expected to provide a more innovative and contemporary curriculum to include more specialized and critically needed courses. Additionally, the division will focus on entrepreneurship and a “maker-manufacturer innovation initiative” in partnership with various entities in the business community.

Other benefits include the development of a more robust learning community for business students, expansion of internships, as well as experiential learning opportunities in the community. It is anticipated that in addition to updating core courses and competencies, the program will include a business-related, real-world “culminating experience” or capstone.

The new division is expected to develop several new degree programs in areas including accounting, marketing, management, finance, human resources and information systems.

Raymond Wrabley, social science division chair, will lead the division until a search is conducted to identify a new chairperson.
