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 international 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 prepare students for the global economy. Focused classroom instruction, required internship experiences and co-curricular activities, as well as the opportunity to study abroad, all combine to help make this a reality--preparing our students for "Every Workplace" and "Every Nation."

To follow the university mission of graduating students who see lifeís work as a holy calling with eternal impact, the School o f Business has created the LifeWork Planning Initiative. Through LifeWork Planning, the School of Business seeks to prepare its students as effectively as possible for their lives and careers beyond college. As students progress through their years at LeTourneau, it is the desire of the School of Business to provide the avenue through which they can intentionally incorporate and benchmark the implementation of the Christian Leadership Distinctives. These distinctives, (Discovering Purpose, Grounding Values, Broadening Knowledge, Collaborating Service, and Deepening Skills) provide an educational framework that guides and gives direction and orientation to everything the students will study inside and outside of the classroom.
