LC State Business


The Business Division at LC,
it cares about your success, and your potential.
And realizing your potential. I didn’t know what I wanted
to do with my accounting degree. But, through working with my
professors, they’ve been able to put me on a couple different
paths to success. Even just getting a business
degree as an undergrad is applicable. Learning how to
take care of your finances just personally. No matter what you go and do
later on in life, you’re going
to have finances. Even if you’re an artist,
you might want to sometime start a business to sell
your own art. So business classes will apply
to any kind of a career at all. So not only is there a clear
career path within the business degrees, but they are also
applicable to any other career that you might want
to be involved in. There’s business administration,
and then there’s also one business administration with the
accounting emphasis. There’s general business. And then there’s general
studies business. And then we have the two
that are cross listed, business communications and
sport leadership. And then associate’s degrees. LCSC is like a private college
but at a public college price. I know that I can speak to a
professor after every class. I can email them and get a
response within a day. And it’s because they don’t
have hundreds of students. Typically, the Business Division
doesn’t have class on Friday’s. But we have advisor’s meetings and we can talk to our
professors anytime. They have open office hours. Usually, the same professor will
have the student in several classes. And so they get to know where
their strengths are, they get to know where
they need additional help, and they can recommend things. I think what stands out to me
about the Business Division is the experience and knowledge
that our professors and faculty
have. They come from a
wide background. LCSC is one of the first public
schools in Idaho to actually have the business – their
complete degree online. I do online classes. There’s quite a few different
course options that you can take for electives. Things to make it work for a
parent and a non-traditional student who still is working. I had been doing job interviews
and getting hired, and then going into a job and
getting promotions, and realizing that I have
a possibility of kind of expediting some of those
and bettering myself, and building my resume,
by going to college, making
connections. Seeing the full picture of
how a business is run is really interesting. We’ve seen, through
different fundamentals classes, how the various underlying
levels of a business work. And then as other students
go into different fields
of business, they come back together in our
senior seminar class and we kind of bring it
all together. When I first started here,
I thought “Well I just need to get a degree.” Then I realized I’m not just
getting a degree, I’m I’m getting an
education. It’s not the piece of paper.
It’s the education. Our CPA pass rates are higher
than a lot of other schools. So you’ve got a job waiting
for you right out of college. I want to be educated,
I want to be on the top end of a hiring pool. There hasn’t been a day that I
have gone through school thinking I wish I would go
through a different degree. Not a single day. I think that I’m in the best
program. I think that the professors
are top notch. We have the best teachers
around. Plain and simple. I think a student from any area
in the country – or even the world, for that
matter – should consider LCSC, because there’s a spot for you. We have a wonderful
variety of programs, our faculty care, and it’s a
great place to learn.
