ABOUT BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

Lenoir-Rhyne’s innovative Bachelor of Science Business Administration program is available only to students in LR’s Adult Learners program. These courses are offered as fully online and/or hybrid classes to furnish our Adult learners greater accessibility to meet their busy schedules and not interfere with their present employment. The program is especially designed for students with Associate degrees or who have extensive undergraduate hours but have not completed their baccalaureate program. Other students will be considered for admission on a case-by-case basis.

Students will obtain a general Business Administration degree. The 48-hour program provides students with essential business administration knowledge including research and leadership skills, legal and ethical principles, organizational behavior and communication, human resources, finance and accounting principles, marketing, strategic management, and global applications.

Students who are qualified and want to continue onward to complete a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) have an excellent opportunity at LR. Through our Bridges to Dreams and Alumni Advantage programs, qualified students may begin their graduate work in their senior years, providing the opportunity for faster completion of two degrees. In addition, graduate tuition for LR alumni will be discounted. Please review these programs for more details.
