School of Business

Here at LCU School of Business we seek to graduate not just highly-educated students, but students who are also highly-ethical—they know how to lead and manage. We want to give them experiences outside of the classroom—so we will take trips to New York where we visit the places like the New York Stock Exchange. We have a competition each spring called Chap Tank, which is a small business idea competition where students can earn prize money and help them fund their business and their idea. We have a Leadership Summit trip where we bring our students together with business professionals—business leaders who not only are at the top of their organizations, but there are also Christians. We give our students so many opportunities to bridge the gap of classroom knowledge and practical real-world application, which is evident when you combine what we do in the classroom with what we do outside of the classroom. With our students, then when they graduate from LCU, they are well-prepared for a career in whatever field it is that they’ve chosen, whether it's accounting, economics, finance, or digital media arts. It may be that you have a perspective outside of the classroom that's valuable that students won't get at every university. “Because of LCU connections, I've managed to get an internship at a huge restaurant chain working in the finance department. The first day I was in the office, the financial director showed me some of the day-to-day operations. Some of the things that he showed me were things that I was familiar with from the classes that I've taken here. This included sales projections, spreadsheets, how they do the payroll—the fact that I was already familiar with some of the tools and ideas that he was overseeing made it easy for me to step into the internship and explain my knowledge in the field of Finance.” “My senior year I wasn't sure of what I wanted to do I. told Tiffany that they have sent me an email from this bank saying that they would like to interview me. She helped set up a mock interview so that they could help me prepare. That sounded really good because I was really scared and I had never done this type of interview before. That day I went in and she helped me cover information like what I should or shouldn't say. The real interview was with the HR director, but since my professors had prepared me, it felt like it was just a normal conversation with her because she did ask me some of the questions that they had already prepared me for. It was just like telling her about myself, and now I have a full-time job at ABC Bank. It's just so great being around people that are so friendly each day. Everyone gets along really well, and it's really a nice place to work.” “I really that we have great teachers, who are knowledgeable and who are well-educated, who know what they're talking about. Anyone who's looking at where they want to go to school, I want to invite you to come down to let us show you around. Let us show you that we really are going to take care of you and get to know you as a student as a person.”
