10 Distinguishing Factors
The Lundy-Fetterman School of Business is distinguished by many unique characteristics.
Philosophy of Business
The Lundy Chair of the Philosophy of Business, one of the nation’s oldest free enterprise chairs, ensures that all students in the School of Business appreciate the free enterprise system and understand the power and ethical nature of voluntary trade. Unlike many business programs, our students not only learn how to use their business education to earn a livelihood; but they also develop an awareness of why markets exist and how those markets enhance our standard of living.
3+2 BBA/MBA Degree Program
Lundy-Fetterman School of Business students may apply for admission to the Graduate Program in Business at the end of their junior year. By adding a fifth year to their program of study, selected applicants will be eligible to receive both the BBA and MBA degrees simultaneously.
Career Development & Placement
The School of Business is the only individual school at Campbell University with an in-house Career Development and Placement Office. All School of Business students are encouraged and welcome to visit our Career Development personnel for internship and job placement opportunities.
High 4-year Programming Rate
While many colleges and universities now expect students to spend five or even six years on the path to graduation, the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business is graduating students in four years and sometimes even as few as three. Over 85% of School of Business students who graduate with a bachelor’s degree do so within 4 years of study. The School of Business does this through strong advisement and flexible curriculums.
Flexibility of Degree
All majors within the Business School run parallel to one another within the first two years of study, allowing students the flexibility to change majors and/or add a minor to their course of study within the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business.
Each incoming freshman in the School of Business will be grouped with an upperclassmen student mentor to help with social adjustments, academic issues, and “belonging”.
Leadership Development & Opportunities
The Lundy-Fetterman School of Business is home to the Dean’s Undergraduate Advisory Council, multiple honor societies, and major-based, student-lead clubs to allow leadership opportunities for students. Students also have the option of minoring in Management to learn team building and leadership skills.
In the School of Business, students are more than a number. All faculty and staff follow an open-door policy and are required to keep office hours. Staff members are available throughout the day to help students with all issues.
Academic Adviser, Student Mentor, Success Coach: The three-prong approach partners students with a faculty member, staff member, and student mentor to help in the transition from high school to college, as well as helping the student succeed in all areas of academics.
Housed within the Lundy-Fetterman School of Business is the Gilbert T. Stephenson Business Library which is open to all students. The Folwell Lounge features an area for students to hang-out, as well as, tables and chairs for meetings and studying with groups; break-out rooms are also available within the building as study rooms.
