Philadelphia Business Journal once again names Peirce College the seventh-largest business school in the region

Today is a great day at Peirce because, once again, Philadelphia Business Journal has ranked Peirce College as the seventh-largest business school in the Philadelphia region! We’re proud that our career-focused business degree programs are recognized as one of the most popular and successful in the Delaware Valley. We’re even prouder because this is the second year in a row that Peirce’s business school has earned this distinction.

There’s good reason why our business degree programs are so successful. We take pride in making sure our programs are up-to-date with the most current information and resources to help our students get the experience they need to secure jobs after they graduate or advance in their current career path. And Peirce College is one of just 32 colleges and universities worldwide with a business program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) at both the associate and baccalaureate levels -- we’re also one of just seven Accounting programs accredited by the ACBSP.

Students studying Business Administration at the College have a variety of concentrations to choose from, ensuring they meet the requirements of employers in today’s job market. They include Business Law, Entrepreneurship/Small Business, Management, Marketing, and Professional Studies. We’ve also created separate Accounting and Human Resource Management bachelor’s degree programs under the business umbrella to further meet those needs.

By offering classes at our Center City campus and online, we make it easy for students to earn their degree while balancing their work and family lives. We offer students the flexibility to study when it works for them. We’re also now offering our Business Administration classes in a new daytime program format that allows students to complete their degree in four years. Our ultimate goal is to serve our students the best way we can.

So there you have it -- the things that place us in the top-ten in the Philadelphia region. Tell your friends, tell your family, and definitely tell your friends who are thinking about earning a degree in business that there’s no better place to earn it than Peirce College. They don’t have to take our word for it -- they just have to pick up the latest copy of the Philadelphia Business Journal!

Thanks to all our students, faculty, and staff who made this ranking possible. If you want to know more about why Peirce College has the seventh largest biggest school in the region, email the Admissions Office or call us at 888.467.3472, ext. 9000.
