Dean: Dwayne A. Banks, PhD

The School of Business and Leadership (SBL) offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs nationally accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). These include: Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) in Accounting, Computer Information Systems and Security (CISS), Management and Marketing. The school also offers other business-related degrees, including a BAS in CISS, BBA in Finance and Bachelor of Science BBA in Individualized Concentration (BS) degrees in CISS. In addition, minors are available to all non-SBL students (and for some SBL majors) in Business, CISS, Economics, Finance and Accounting, Management and Marketing. (See restrictions on minors for SBL students below.)

Business and CISS Majors
Students may declare any of the degrees offered by the SBL as their major upon admission to OLLU. After completion of 60 semester hours, students must also be admitted to the SBL to continue into advanced SBL coursework and complete a degree. To be admitted to the SBL, a student must meet the following minimum requirements.

SBL admission requirements:

  • Successful completion of 60 semester hours applicable to an SBL undergraduate degree

Minors for SBL Students

Although minors are not required for SBL degrees, students may opt to pursue any minor offered at OLLU, with the exceptions: students pursuing any BBA degree, the BS in CISS may not minor in Business, Economics, Finance and Accounting or Marketing. Students who choose to pursue a minor must meet all of the requirements for the selected minor. Completion of the optional minor may require additional coursework over and above the minimum requirements of the business degree. In determining whether students have satisfied the requirements for a minor, “double counting” a course to satisfy more than one requirement is not acceptable.
