Business Department

With one of the largest departments on campus, the business faculty strive to equip students with the concepts and skills that are fundamental for success in today’s business world. We offer our students a myriad of hands-on learning experiences, both in and out of the classroom, and our alumni consistently have high success in finding quality jobs and pursuing post-graduate work.

Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in Business Administration are available through the business department. Business administration majors can choose an emphasis in management, marketing, general business, or finance.

How We Stand Out

  • Personalized Attention – Despite being one of the largest departments, small class sizes allow for ample one-on-one attention from faculty.
  • Highly-Qualified Faculty – Faculty combine academic expertise with real-world experience.
  • Successful Graduates – Our graduates continue to find high placements in the workforce, and alumni are well prepared to pursue graduate work, if desired.
  • Diversity – We have many international students who choose to study business, adding dimension as we prepare students to work in a globally-focused marketplace.

Opportunities for Students

  • Internships - While studying at HLGU, business students have opportunities for internships. Recent students have interned at MODOT, Hannibal Regional Hospital, and United Way, among others.
  • Membership in Phi Beta Lambda (PBL) – Members gather monthly and have regular opportunities for service and social activities.

Preparing Students for Future Success

  • Prepared for graduate work – a challenging and preparatory academic program positions graduates well for continued study.
  • High job placement rates – even in a challenging economy, our alumni continue to place high in the working world.
