Student Opportunities

AACSB Accredited SealBeyond the classroom

The ins and outs of business can’t be explained or experienced solely within the walls of a classroom, so our business students are given many opportunities to put their knowledge to the test out in the real world.

Our majors can:

  • Gain firsthand experience in businesses and industries through internships approved by the department and Lander’s campuswide Experience Your Education (EYE) program. Internships are available through local small and large enterprises. These are project-based internships providing meaningful experiences.
  • Polish their leadership skills in the Lander Professional Business Society, organized to simulate an actual business. Lander Professional Business Society offers many opportunities: social events and events to support the college, along with assisting the Office of the Dean.
  • Be invited to join Beta Gamma Sigma, the business honor society.

Get Involved

The Lander Professional Business Society (LPBS)
LPBS is an organization on Lander University’s campus, and it is the result of a merger between the Business and Accounting Clubs. Our membership encompasses business students studying in the fields of accounting, health care, marketing, finance, economics and management. The diversity of our membership makes us strong and gives us the ability to adapt to the changes of the growing business environment.
