The School of Business hopes to transform the lives of students through the highest quality business programs focused on the application of Christian values. There are three core principles embedded throughout the School of Business: (1) We integrate our faith with our discipline, thus producing graduates who consider the impact of Scripture on decision making; (2) Critical thinking is infused in the curriculum and students must support responses with logic, theory, and experience; and (3) Experiential learning is a hallmark of our academic pedagogy. In lower-level classes, this is accomplished with guest speakers or brief case applications. In upper-level courses, students experience hands-on projects, competing in a virtual industry, and solving comprehensive cases requiring extensive research with results presented in a classroom setting.

What businesses are Saying...

We have been honored to partner with the Lee University School of Business for several years in our continued talent search for the best and brightest graduates from local universities. As much as we look for students with excellent academic achievement, we also look for passion and drive which is something we see within our Lee University hires.  Many of our Lee University campus recruits have taken full advantage of the opportunities offered at HHM to become managers and even partners at our firm.  These Lee graduates help HHM uphold its stellar reputation of providing professional services while displaying good stewardship within the communities we serve.  HHM looks forward to many more years of enjoying a successful partnership with Lee.

The School of Business at Lee prepared and equipped me to be able to add value to a corporation right out of their program. I would highly recommend Lee’s School of Business program since you will be challenged, and it is close to Chattanooga where many internship opportunities exist. You will be able to connect what’s being taught in the classroom with what’s happening in the business world. All the while, you are in an environment where Jesus Christ is exalted.

Technology Risk Consultant – EY

After graduating from Lee University in December 2021, I was nervous but excited about beginning my career. After interviewing at several different companies, I found my home as a Campus Recruiter for Total Quality Logistics. I was able to transfer skills to my current position that I learned at Lee, such as organization, communication, and relationship building.  These skills made the transition into the work force so easy. Through this position, I am able to help give others an opportunity to start out in the work force on the right foot. Lee prepared me for Christ centered excellence in college and beyond.

Cory Gates

After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, Cory pursued a job opportunity at BB&T. After five years on the job and completion of the company’s Leadership Develop Program, Cory desired to further develop his “business sense, communication, and time management skills.” Cory works with BB&T’s credit underwriting process, as well as manages the bank’s local commercial loan portfolio and client retention efforts. By deciding to return to Lee for his MBA, Cory was able to put into practice the skills and concepts he learned while in the program, which allowed him to further excel in his career. Cory says the Lee MBA was an appropriate fit due to the skill sets he gained from his educators and peers and “Lee’s emphasis on hands-on, real-time experience through case study analysis and applications.”
