The overall college experience can be some of the most fun and exciting times of growth and adventure. While business students are working towards a degree, they are highly encouraged to participate in a variety of student organizations. These groups include ENACTUS, Delta Mu Delta, Lincoln Ambassadors, SHARE Club, Black Student Union, Wildlife Society, Baptist Collegiate Ministries, Native American Student Union, Social Justice Club, and College Democrats. Other student activities involve outdoor movies, leadership development activities, Pool Olympics, Intramural Sports, and high adventure trips.
Academic Services helps provide access to any resource the business student needs to develop academically, including tutoring, workshops, support programs, academic advising, and group study. Career Services assists in deciding on the right major, providing career fairs, searching for jobs, job and interview prep, resume creation, finding and preparing for internships, and job shadowing opportunities. As it is important to serve others in the holistic developmental process, the Office of Student Leadership and Outreach leads students in finding community service opportunities. For example, students can help with Lincoln’s Cupboard, the on-campus food pantry, or provide free tax advice for needy people through the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program. The University also has the Central Appalachian Center for Economic Development: The Entrepreneur and Small Business Connection, where students can work on projects that both better the environment and help the local economy.
Graduate students have the beneficial option of acquiring the Master of Business Administration degree entirely online, with all of the optional seven concentrations available as well. They can also pursue the online Masters in Business Analytics degree and the Doctor of Business Administration degree that is only offered online.
