There are seven majors within the Pamplin School of Business Administration. These include six B.B.A. (Bachelor in Business Administration) majors in accounting, economics, finance, global business, operations and technology management, Entrepreneurship & Innovation Management, and Marketing & Sustainabiligy. A separate B.A. major in economics is also available. All B.B.A. majors have the same basic structure, a set of courses that are unique to each area, and two to four elective courses. 

The Pamplin Professional Preparation Program (P4)

P4 provides students with the tools they need, early in their academic careers, to discover what they want to explore now and into the future. The program guides each student toward that career through job shadows and internships. Students are engaged as soon as they arrive on campus, beginning with analyzing their strengths and interests so they can identify and pursue a career they will truly enjoy and continuing their professional growth through speed networking and mock interviews. Annual P4 service projects throughout the Portland community reinforce the understanding of being part of the bigger world and are an essential component to this holistic professional development program.



In addition to the departmental requirements listed above, students must also complete coursework for university admission, general education requirements, and BA/BS requirements. Meet with a PCC Academic Advisor to develop an effective transfer plan that will meet your individual needs.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
