The ACBSP-accredited School of Business at Lee University provides business students with a Christian worldview while prioritizing ethical principles, teamwork, research, critical thinking skills, integrity, and competency. While assisting students in following what God has called them to do, the School of Business instills understanding, knowledge, responsibility, appreciation, and a desire for redemptive service while nurturing a holistic approach to preparing their graduates to succeed in life and the marketplace.
Undergraduate students can major in Business Administration, Accounting, Information Systems, or Healthcare Administration. Business Administration majors can emphasize in one of the following areas: Finance, International Business, Management, Marketing Management, Management Information Systems, or Nonprofit Management. The graduate program offers a Masters in Business Administration. An excellent way for students to challenge themselves, personally grow, build upon their faith, and gain an international business and cultural perspective is to participate in the study abroad program. Business students can travel to places like China, England, Germany, Honduras, India, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Peru, Thailand, Uruguay, and Argentina.
Education can be expensive, so the University provides a considerable amount of financial aid options for both undergraduate and graduate students. New merit scholarships that business students can apply for are The Dean’s Scholarship, The Presidential Scholarship, and The Centennial Scholarship.
A good mix of types of student clubs and organizations exist to help develop the mind, body, and spirit of every student. These groups include the Lee University Advertising Federation, Asian Council, Black Student Union, International Student Fellowship, Pi Kappa Pi, College Republicans, Rotaract, Peacemakers, Cycling, and the traveling drama team called the Kingdom Players. Each student has the privilege of working personally with a faculty advisor who is a personal mentor, helps determine strengths, and advises on classes and academic decisions.
The Center for Career and Calling is another form of support for students that can last a lifetime. It helps students to line up a career path that matches God’s calling on their lives. Through events, career exploration, resume writing, mock interviews, job searches, online resources, networking events, and recruiter connections, the Center is successful at helping business students succeed in life and career. Service Learning has been a required piece of the business curriculum for 17 years now and is highly prioritized in the success of the career preparation process. The Leonard Center helps to provide, organize, and track hours of service. Service-learning can be earned through situations within the classroom, service projects, and activities outside of the classroom through partnerships with local organizations. These opportunities foster ideas of Christian service, civic virtue, social justice, and benevolence while developing professional skills.
Online degree programs provide a more affordable, accessible, and flexible way to earn a higher education. Lee offers business students a Bachelors in Business Administration with an emphasis in Management and a Masters in Business Administration. The MBA can be completed entirely online or in a hybrid format with some online coursework mixed with on-campus sessions.
