Business Administration with a concentration in Financial Services
The concentration in Financial Services Management complements a solid grounding in management and leadership, provided in our established accelerated Business Administration curriculum, with six new modules (10-15 below) that deliver in-depth application to the specific challenges of the financial services industry. Students explore various legal, ethical, financial, systems and regulatory considerations faced by financial services managers and develop the sound teamwork and decision-making skills required by successful leaders. Using a project-based learning model, coursework aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the components of today's financial services environment.
The structure of classes reinforces the importance of experiential and team-based learning. Students are teamed and work together on projects and presentations both inside and outside of the classroom. Students are encouraged and expected to voice their opinions and reflect on their learning. Classes take many forms but generally consist of some lecture with real life application of theory, class discussions,review of assignments and presentations.
Upon graduating from Muhlenberg College, students in the Accelerated Business Administration Program will demonstrate proficiency in the following skills:
*Oral and written communication.

*Clearly identify the challenge and implicit aspect of an issue and articulate the integral elements essential to its resolution.
