Business Program

Whether you plan to transfer to a four-year college or start your career right away, LCCC’s School of Business has an academic program to meet your needs. Programs can be completed on a part-time or full-time basis. All programs are designed to be completed in two years or less if you attend full-time and meet all prerequisites.

Many courses are offered year-round in the classroom at our multiple campus locations and/or online. Some of our programs can be completed entirely online.

Transfer - Our A.A. and A.S. degree programs are set up to be the first two years of a four-year degree and are ideal for students who intend to transfer to a four-year school to earn a bachelor’s degree. Completing our Business Administration A.A. degree will allow you to transfer with full junior standing to any state system university in PA. In addition, our degree and courses are readily transferable to a wide variety of PA state related and private institutions, as well as colleges and universities outside PA. If you have a talent for athletics, consider our transfer program in Sport Management.

Career - If more immediate employment is your goal, or you want to advance in your current job, then enroll in an A.A.S. or Certificate program. We offer Accounting, Business Management, Hotel/Resort Management, and Human Resource Management. Want to run the office, or run your own business?

ACBSP is a specialized accreditation body with an emphasis on teaching excellence that evaluates associate degree business programs. ACBSP does not evaluate certificate or diploma programs. ACBSP recognizes institutions that demonstrate high-quality instruction and student learning by engaging in continuous assessment and improvement. For more information visit ACBSP.

 

Part of the accreditation process requires that LCCC share data on student learning. To view selected student learning outcomes, review this Excerpt from LCCC’s 2013 Quality Assurance Report.

 Eligible students in ACBSP accredited associate degree programs may apply for membership in Kappa Beta Delta (KBD). KBD is an International Honor Society that rewards academic achievement and encourages personal and professional improvement and service to others. An invitation to apply for membership is sent to all eligible students each spring. For more information visit Kappa Beta Delta International Honor Society.
