Course Descriptions

IMG_4014When Alice Lloyd first came to Kentucky, she declared “The leaders are here!” For this reason, the Alice Lloyd College Business Department is committed to developing today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders. Through training in Business and Entrepreneurship, our students have a competitive edge when leaving our campus. Many go on to obtain advanced degrees, while others choose to enter the workforce immediately upon graduation.

Alice Lloyd College’s Business Program provides students with a basic understanding of the primary functional areas of business (accounting, finance, management, and marketing). The core component of the program is designed to provide a broad educational base through substantial education and through a common body of business knowledge. The elective component gives students the flexibility to tailor their course of study. Generally, the first two years of study consist primarily of pre-business courses and general education. The following two years are oriented toward providing the student with a strong business background and in-depth study of the business environment. The Business Program also offers minors in Accounting, Business Administration, and Entrepreneurship. In the fall of 2013, Alice Lloyd introduced its new major in Accounting and Business Management.

Our Purpose

The Business Program strives to prepare students for positions of leadership and service to Appalachia. Graduates of this program can provide leadership through self-employment, employment in area businesses, governmental agencies, non-profit organizations, and through graduate work or further study in business-related fields.

The economic imperative of this area is to establish a diversified economic base that will provide a variety of job opportunities. Providing this region with graduates who are well-prepared and dedicated to service in Appalachia may serve to attract new industry and increase efficiency in existing businesses. The Alice Lloyd graduate is encouraged to understand the area’s economic condition and is challenged to consider proposals for improvement. The foresight and commitment of those indigenous to this region remain the driving force for needed changes.
