LCIE Catalog 2014-2015


Business Administration B.S.

The LCIE bachelor of science degree in business administration prepares students to become managers of business and nonprofit organizations and enhances their knowledge of business topics if already employed in a management capacity. The intent of the program is to expand business skills and to provide students with a strong liberal arts and professional business background. All LCIE undergraduate degree programs contain core requirements in the liberal arts. This is particularly important to the manager because it provides the opportunity to develop cultural, human, and theoretical understandings essential for successful business interactions and effective community leadership.

Throughout their studies, LCIE students gain practice in management techniques as they learn to write concise papers, make small group presentations, practice effective time management, and communicate with fellow student professionals. The business administration major requires 57 semester hours in the area of business administration as listed in the core curriculum. The business administration major also requires either the completion of the mathematics cluster or appropriate transfer credit for the general education mathematics requirement. Transfer credit must include statistics. Either college algebra or an approved quantitative methods for business course will complete the general education mathematics requirement.
