Study Business Administration at LBC

Integrating Faith into the Workplace

The business world needs Christian leaders. Be one of them. Whether you’re an aspiring business mogul, want to run your own startup, work at a Fortune 500 company, or consider yourself more of the entrepreneurial type, get the training you need to succeed.

Through our business administration major, you’ll receive a blend of both Bible and business classes, equipping you spiritually and academically to effectively serve in your professional and personal life. Our hands-on learning and practical business training puts our graduating students on equal footing with other candidates applying for entry-level business positions. Our business administration program is truly singular and offers students a unique chance to learn how to integrate their faith into the workplace through Christian education.

Our accelerated program offers undergraduate degrees to adult learners in a fast-paced, flexible format! While our traditional undergraduate programs are geared toward 18 to 22-year-olds, the accelerated program is designed to meet the needs of adults who juggle their education around an already full schedule. Typical undergraduate students spend 45 hours per week for nine months to earn 30 credits. Through our accelerated program, we cut that weekly time commitment more than in half – thereby, helping you to achieve your goals even faster than you thought possible.

How Does the Accelerated Course Schedule Work?

The Accelerated program consists of TWO terms:

  1. Fall: July–December
  2. Spring: January–June

Each term is comprised of FOUR course sessions. A course session runs for SIX classes and runs back-to-back across all the weeks of the year. Due to holidays and breaks, a course session may vary between 6-8 weeks. Exact dates for each term are available through the Accelerated Office.

Students may choose to take their courses either in class, online, or both.

  • In class
    Students taking on-site classes come once a week for five weeks per course. Our courses typically meet on Tuesday* nights from 6 to 10 PM. During the sixth week of the course, the class does not meet so that students can complete their course work.
    (*Philadelphia classes meets Monday through Thursday.)
  • Online classes
    Students taking online courses are not required to attend class at any time. Instead, they engage in collaborative learning through Canvas, our learning management system. Learn more about studying online.

Determining What Courses To Take

Each student’s path to completion is unique, depending upon the courses you are transferring into the program. The curriculum plan above gives a broad picture of the required credits. If your transfer credits come from mostly one of those areas, you will need to take credits in the other areas. The remaining courses you need for graduation can best be determined after reviewing your transcripts. With flexible electives, Bible and Theology requirements, and General Education requirements, most students are able to transfer to LBC the maximum number of credits.

Credits for Prior Learning. Students can earn up to 30 life experience credits, through the Credits for Prior Learning evaluation process, which will often reduce the time to complete a degree. The life experience credit evaluation process is done after a student begins a program.


When Can I Start?

As soon as you are ready. LBC has 8 entry points per year meaning you are only ever a few weeks away till the next course starts.
