Black School of Business Overview

Black School of Business Overview

Welcome to the School of Business at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College! Preparing graduates for business success in the global economy

In the Black School of Business, students benefit from the resources and opportunities provided by a major research institution while enjoying the advantages of learning in a smaller, multidisciplinary setting. The school offers students a high-tech academic environment in the Jack Burke Research and Economic Development Center and unique learning opportunities made possible by a $20 million endowment from the late insurance executive Samuel P. Black, Jr., and his wife, Irene.

The Black School of Business understands the global marketplace and prepares our graduates for success in a global community. To do so, the school strongly encourages students to participate in global education opportunities.

The Black School of Business is the only school in the region accredited by AACSB International, the premier accrediting agency for schools of business worldwide. The school is also listed in U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Business Schools and the Princeton Review’s Best 300 Business Schools.
