Lindsey Wilson College’s School of Business and Communication focuses on “every student, every day.” This student-centered approach fosters personal relationships with professors, a welcoming academic and social atmosphere, and a living-learning environment that sets students up for great success. Built upon Christian values and the foundations of business theory and principles, the School of Business and Communication prepares students to reach their career goals and aspirations.
There are a variety of undergraduate degrees for business students. The IACBE-accredited Bachelors in Business Administration offers emphasis options in Marketing, Accounting, Computer Information Systems, or Management. The Management degree offers concentrations in Entrepreneurial, Human Resources, or Lean Systems Management. Other Bachelors degrees are in Communications; Interdisciplinary Studies; Media Studies; and Recreation, Tourism, & Sport Management. Graduate students can earn a Masters in Technology Management. Several financial aid platforms exist to help students pay for their education, including the Begley Scholarship, the Christian Service Grant, and the Alumni Legacy Scholarship. There are a variety of opportunities for business students to study abroad to learn about a different culture, its business practices, and grow in their independence. Possibilities include the Lindsey in London program, universities in Northern Ireland, and Student Exchange Programs with sister schools in Japan and South Korea.
For the further development of knowledge, leadership abilities, and social life, the College provides a plethora of student organizations. These groups include the Student Government Association, Adventure Recreation Club, Black Student Union, Delight Ministries, Energy & Environmental Club, College Republicans, Progressive Club, Student Ambassadors, United Nations Club, and Women’s Student Union. At the heart of the College is its association with The United Methodist Church. Therefore, several organizations exist to enhance the spiritual life of a student, including worship, mission, and prayer teams, and the LIFE service. There is also the John B. Begley Chapel on campus, where students can escape to for peace of mind and quiet meditation.
Another aspect of the educational experience is service-learning, where students engage with and assist in helping the community. The College is associated with the Center for Courageous Kids, Lindsey Wilson’s Campus Kitchen, Latino Outreach Program, and Green River Animal Shelter. Students can also learn by serving through the Service Trip to God’s Love We Deliver in New York, the Bonner Scholars Spring Break Service trip to Florida, and the Annual Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic. To help enhance the career preparation process, Career Services provides students and alumni with numerous resources and assistance. These include evaluating goals, advising, searching for jobs, building a resume, preparing for interviews, assessing interests, researching graduate schools, the Job and Internship Fair, and networking resources.
The Masters in Business Administration degree can be earned entirely online or in a hybrid format that involves online coursework and on-campus classes. The online MBA offers an emphasis in General Business.
