The Division of Business has a mission of combining a full-time, teaching faculty with an academic program that challenges students in a community of learning. All courses are built on a Christian worldivew. We believe this approach produces well informed, ethically sensitive, and academically prepared graduates. The division has graduated hundreds who have succeeded in various managerial and leadership positions in the United States and overseas.
Internships are offered in each of the specialization areas within the Division, and students are able to join the Society for the Advancement of Management (SAM), and the Business Students Association (BSA), which is open to all majors within the Division. Delta Mu Delta, the national honor society in business, is open to the top 20 percent of the junior and senior classes.
Our business graduates consistently provide feedback confirming that their experience in the division enhanced their confidence and preparedness for the workplace. They often mention the close relationship with the professors as a major positive factor. Students graduating from the Division of Business are capable of pursuing advanced degrees, passing the CPA exam and joining the workforce.
An internship program and a business honor society offer opportunities for hands-on experience in the local community or in the student's home community.
Each year, the division awards one full tuition academic award to a deserving incoming freshman.

I believe that the hands-on projects, networking and professor-student relationships through the LC Business Department truly had an impact on how I approached my professional career post-graduation. Feel free to discuss the curriculum structure, professor care, student relationships, etc. There was nothing more impactful on my education at Louisiana College than the one-on-one nature of professor-student relationships that were able to flourish. I count my professors as some of my friends as well as my mentors.
I'm now working at that company as their Digital Storyteller, assisting brands in telling their brand story across digital mediums such as photography, video, web, email and social. I was recently on the board for a local creative conference called 99u that some friends and I organized and hosted.

The Division of Business taught me how to succeed in the professional world through the use of a challenging and Christian-based curriculum while also focusing on the importance of building relationships.
The one thing that really stood out to me about LC's Division of Business is the way the teachers always took the time to make sure everyone was understanding and learning the material whether that was in or outside the classroom. They really do care about the success of their students and will do everything in their power to help them achieve their potential. The small class environment gives you a much greater opportunity to ask questions, participate in discussion, and have a professor who actually knows who you are and who is absolutely committed to your success.
Since graduation I have been working at Beta Engineering as a Marketing Coordinator.

Where to begin? The LC Business Division equipped me with the tools I needed to jump into a marketing position and feel absolutely capable. The lessons learned in the classroom or over a conference table positively influenced and molded me with business mindset I needed for the future.
The teacher/student ratio was one of the most impacting factors of my schooling at LC. I didn't feel intimidated to ask questions or simply ask for help (or prayer) when I needed it. The support of the staff guided me during some of the most important times of my life. I appreciate the time each of them took with me. The shy, introvert I was quickly became comfortable and enjoyed every single day as a business student!
Since graduation I have taken on a role in the business world that LC prepared me for. I'm currently the Marketing Director for Med Express Ambulance Service, Inc. Thanks to each professor, staff member, and gruesome exam I am enjoying and loving every minute of work.

The Division of Business at Louisiana College prepared me for the real world by challenging me to think outside the box. There were ample discussions of real life situations that showed how the curriculum could be used in an actual business setting. The smaller class sizes also contributed to my growth as a business minded thinker by encouraging class discussions that helped elaborate on topics. The ability to work through situations together as a group and have an opportunity to gather the thoughts and opinions of people from all walks of life have allowed me to be a more effective manager in the real world.
From the second you walk into the Business Division there is a sense of belonging. The faculty is there for you, for your betterment. That is something that in my time truly meant a lot, it is something that is special and not available at every institution. Professors know you personally and can be found at any time in their office to discuss class, assignments and on some occasions just a great conversation.
Upon graduation from LC I began work in a management trainee program for the second largest construction sales vendor in Louisiana. Our initial training group consisted of students from schools across Louisiana. Thanks to the faculty and professors at LC I have been able to shine among the competition due to knowledge and education I received that more than prepared me for the job market.
I would recommend a Business Degree from Louisiana College to those who are looking to become successful individuals in anything business related. The preparation you receive is second to none.
