The LeTourneau University School of Business offers a wide variety of majors and minors, allowing students to tailor their education to specific areas of interest. Todayís employers often select employees based on specific skills, but promote for general skills. With that in mind, all of LeTourneauís business majors have three essential components: (1) a strong foundation of general education courses; (2) a solid core of business courses; and (3) specialized study in a specific area of business. LeTourneauís business programs are designed to help students become business leaders. Focused classroom instruction, required internship experiences and co-curricular activities, as well as the opportunity to earn a minor in leadership, all combine to help make this a reality.

The following policies apply to students majoring in any area of study offered by the School of Business.
  1. Students with a major in Business Administration (without a concentration) may not double-major in another business area, but may double-major in a non-business area. Design Technology Concentration students may double-major in another business area.
  2. Students with a major in Business Administration (without a concentration) may minor in leadership or in a non-business area, but may not minor in any other business area.
  3. Students majoring in any area of business other than Business Administration may double-major in any other area of business.
  4. Students may earn a dual degree (in other words, a Bachelor of Arts degree and a Bachelor of Science degree) in International Business and any other business field except Business Administration. Other dual-degree combinations within the School of Business are prohibited.

All of the degree programs offered by the School of Business are professionally accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). Fewer than half of the universities in the U.S. have national professional accreditation of their business programs. Accreditation by IACBE provides valuable external verification of the quality of LeTourneauís business programs.
