This is a full-time management position; this position does not carry faculty or tenure status. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Business Administration, accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), offers a B.S.B.A. program with tracks in marketing, management, finance, accounting, and financial planning, and minors in economics, advertising, and supply chain and logistics, as well as a 30-credit general MBA.

The College also houses an Entrepreneurial Leadership Center and offers an interdisciplinary minor in entrepreneurship.

Additionally, Kutztown University’s award-winning Small Business Development Center, an accredited affiliate of the national network of Small Business Development Centers, is housed within the COB, offering students an opportunity to interact with business leaders within the region.
