The ACBSP-accredited Lundy-Fetterman School of Business at Campbell University offered its first business course in 1892. With years of experience comes a depth of knowledge in preparing business leaders to find success in their competitive industry of choice. The School of Business is committed to “service over self,” and living and leading with purpose, encouragement, commitment, innovation, moral behavior, meaning, and forward-thinking. The Free Enterprise System is interwoven throughout every degree program. Faculty and staff members are not only instructors and professors, but experts in the professional industry and mentors to the students.
Undergraduate students can major in Economics, International Business, Accounting, Business Administration, Marketing, Finance, PGA Golf Management, Healthcare Management, and Trust & Wealth Management. The 4+1 Program allows a student to obtain a Bachelors and a Masters in Business Administration In just five years. Graduate students can pursue a beneficial Master of Business Administration degree with a Financial Services Focus Area, or a Master of Trust & Wealth Management. Dual degree programs include Doctor of Pharmacy/MBA, Juris Doctor/MBA, Master of Divinity/MBA, and a Master of Science in Public Health/MBA. Working professionals can attend MBA classes to educate themselves in a particular area or develop more professionally through the Professional Development Program.
Endowed scholarships available to business students include the Campbell University Alumni Association Business Scholarship, the L. Stuart Surles Business Scholarship, the Newkirk Family Trust and Wealth Management Scholarship, and the Ernst and Young Accounting Scholarship. International educational trips can broaden a student’s multicultural awareness and global perspective, all while earning academic credit. Business students can take part in short-term trips to Cuba or semester or summer-long trips to places like Germany, Costa Rica, Ireland, Poland, United Arab Emirates, Bhutan, China, or Croatia. Business international internships exist in Chile and Spain.
Many student clubs exist to enhance student engagement, leadership development, and community service. Business clubs include the Accounting & Financial Planning Club, Females Associated with Business, Gilbert T. Stephenson Trust Club, Healthcare Management Club, Marketing Club, Professional Golf Management Student Association, and the Social Entrepreneurship Club. Other clubs consist of culture-specific, sports, religious, and other interest groups. Internships with companies like NASA, Fidelity Bank, Apex Systems, Verizon, and Diversified Solutions are highly encouraged and hugely beneficial for each student.
There are countless service projects that business students can get involved in, like Relay for Life, Christmas Angel Tree, the Annual Business Week School Supply Drive, and Truck or Treat. These events fall in line with the mission to place service over oneself. An excellent way for students to learn and engage with the local business community is through HQ Raleigh. It is an “entrepreneurial hub and accelerator” located downtown which incorporates entrepreneurial experiments, presentations, workshops, and workspace shared by Campbell students and the community.
The flexible and convenient, fully online MBA degree helps many students who work full-time, do not live near Campbell University, or have other obligations. The online MBA has an optional Healthcare Management specialization.
