All students entering LSSU beginning Fall 2007 wishing to study business will enter into the Pre-Business Program. You will be placed into courses that will introduce you to business concepts and business careers. In addition, you will be placed into appropriate general education courses based on placement test or ACT/SAT scores. These general education courses are important for students to take and to succeed in as they give students the academic background to be successful in upper level business courses.
Being successful is the goal of the faculty of the School of Business, Economics, and Legal Studies. Having the appropriate academic background, especially in math, reading, writing, and speaking, is critical to student success.

I absolutely love the small size of LSSU. Everything on campus is within a short walking distance. Also, with smaller class sizes, itís much easier to get to know people. There are even professors I had from a couple of years ago that still remember me. It has even become difficult for me to walk across campus without running into someone I know. This has created a very positive experience for me. [ more ]
