International Business Administration

Why Study Business at LCC?

Do you want to be prepared to work in today’s fast-paced business environment? The breadth and format of LCC’s International business administration program will make this goal a reality for you.Gain an understanding of foundational and advanced business theory. Learn to analyze the changing business environment. Develop skills working in intercultural teams. Then take your theoretical knowledge and apply it in practical ways on and off campus, gaining valuable experience before you graduate.

Equipping for Challenges

North American and Lithuanian faculty work together to give you an education that will bridge the gap between the two different traditions of enterprise–those of the East and of the West. The expansion of the European Union is coming quickly. As the Eastern European community seeks integration, relationships with foreign partners become increasingly important. LCC will equip you with the skills needed to not only survive but also to be a step ahead in this transition. You will gain a broad understanding of Western business practices and learn to adapt these to the local business environment. Our international community of professors and students provides you with the perfect laboratory to prepare for the global economy.

More Than Just a Business

Because LCC is a Christian institution we seek to educate you not only as a successful business person, but also as a responsible citizen. Our diverse curriculum will help you place business in the context of broader societal issues. We will challenge you to consider how you relate to people, both professionally and personally. We want to provide you with an ethical framework in which to make decisions. You will develop the ability to think about the world more broadly, a skill which is becoming increasingly important in the business environment. But you will also be challenged to think about how you live your life and how to use your abilities to make a difference in today’s society.

Making it Real for You

LCC provides you with great opportunities to experience the realities of the business world. The Career Development Center (CDC) works to help you function successfully even before you get your Bachelor’s degree. With the help of the CDC, you will learn to become everything employers are looking for from writing a job-winning resume to discovering your real talents and strengths.

Bonnie Straight, former Business Department chair, shares her vision for business students:

Our purpose is not to train specialists, but to develop skilled business professionals who know how to learn, who work well in teams, who work with integrity and imagination, and who have had practice in analyzing the current business environment and identifying areas of opportunity and threat.
