My first association with the professional services industry was in Lander Professor Anthony Santella’s MIS (Management Information Systems) class my junior year. The practical, real-world approach that Lander’s business students receive prepared me for my current career.
Business Administration, Financial Services emphasis
The information I’m learning is so practical and I’m able to see how it will be applied after I graduate. I really enjoy how involved the professors are, and how helpful they are in offering advice and feedback.
Graphic Design and Business Administration, Management/Marketing emphasis
Lander University will begin offering potential graduate students the opportunity to pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA) through a hybrid model where they will be able to split their time between in-person and online coursework.
When deciding on which college he wanted to attend, Lander University sophomore Linus Jonsson said he decided to go to Lander because of the opportunity to earn his bachelor’s degree in business administration alongside doing what he loves most: playing golf.
