Business, Accounting, and Sport Management

"The Business Department at Lyndon provides students with more than just required courses to graduate. The program pushes students to step out of their comfort zone and think critically, as a leader in the business world. This hands-on approach has allowed me to develop skills that I never thought that I would need to succeed."

- Aaron Perry '16, Business Administration and Management
