Come fall, students will be able to earn a bachelor's degree in business administration from Portland State University online.

The program is part of a larger effort to expand online offerings at PSU, the school said in a news release Wednesday.

"Having more online offerings is part of our effort to meet students where they are -- to be more responsive to the consumer," Scott Dawson, dean of PSU's School of Business Administration, said in the news release.

The business degree will be aimed at working students, Dawson said. Now, about half of the business school's students work full time, he said.

The business school is also looking to add, this fall, an online master's degree in supply-chain management and to shift a partly online MBA program to fully online.

The undergraduate program will be the only one of its kind in Oregon, PSU said. Generally, students will take two classes a term over three years. Work will include video conferences and streamed lectures.

Registration began last week. Learn more at pdx.edu/sba/online-bachelors-degree-program.
