Business at Bryn Athyn

Your fellow business classmates are just as enthusiastic and curious as you are. Throughout the program, you will consider a wide variety of perspectives, both practical and theoretical. Our emphasis on ethics paired with New Church philosophy produces hard-working, honest graduates who employers know they can trust.

You will gain a broad base of knowledge from our core curriculum while also diving into specifics in areas like marketing, logistics, and sports management.
