The School of Business at Langston University produces ACBSP-accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs centered around the student and their path to personal and professional success. It strives to provide an impactful and relevant business education full of theory, practice, and real-life applications. Students are influenced by a rigorous curriculum, innovative faculty and student research, and community outreach experiences that help shape a global, entrepreneurial, ethical, and sustainable perspective.
In collaboration with stakeholders and the business community, the latest technology, and quality instruction, the SoB offers excellence in every program area. Undergraduate studies consist of an Associates in Financial Planning, a Bachelors in Business Administration, and a Bachelors in Computer & Information Science. BBA students can major in Finance, Management, Accountancy, Financial Economics, Supply Chain Management, Economics, or Management Information Systems. Business students can choose to concentrate their studies in Entrepreneurship, Supply Chain Management, Human Resources, Marketing, or International Business.
Graduate studies consist of one degree with two tracks. The Master of Entrepreneurial Studies track I and II require six hours of specialization in E-Commerce, Transportation & Logistics, Hospitality & Tourism, Financial Services, Social Entrepreneurship, High-Technology Industries, or Corporate Venturing. Track I is for those who have acquired a business degree. Track II is for anyone who does not already have a business degree.
Several assistance programs exist to help cover tuition costs for qualifying students. There is the LU Foundation Scholarship, the LU Legacy Scholarship, and the LU Leadership Tuition Waiver. Students can also find employment opportunities through the Federal-Work Study and Student Payroll programs, which offer part-time jobs that help cover tuition costs and provide work experience and a resume booster.
The hub of all activities, events, programs, and resources that connect students to the campus and encourage growth and personal development in every area is the Office of Student Life. Through the Office, business students can engage in and be a part of student clubs like the Human Resources Club, Accounting Club, Computer Science Club, African Student Association, and Women of Purpose. There are also fraternities and sororities, the Student Activities Board, the Student Government Association, Leadership Development programs, Student Life programs, and the Student Ambassador Program. Leadership Development and Student Life programs provide learning opportunities that build leadership and professional skills, including conferences, workshops, seminars, and various activities that promote community engagement.
A critical facet of business education is gaining an international business perspective. The LU Center for International Development (LUCID) provides many resources to promote international relations. Business students can join a short-term or long-term study abroad trip. They have access to global research and training and a wealth of international information like maps, books, charts, and job boards.
Langston offers a fully online Bachelors in Management degree for business students. It implements flexibility in schedule and affordability for the same high-quality faculty as on-campus. Students must choose one online specialization out of International Business, Human Resource Management, Supply Chain Management, Entrepreneurship, or Marketing.
