Lake Land College is fully accredited with the Higher Learning Commission-North Central Association. One of the greatest benefits to you, as a consumer, is that, regardless of where you reside, you pay the same tuition rate for online classes as an in-district resident. We have students from across the street and across the world enrolled in our online business classes.
This degree allows you to complete the first two years of a bachelor degree in business. You will work with a faculty advisor to coordinate the classes you take to align with the requirements of the university to where you plan to transfer. Lake Land College has been offering this degree online for several years, and because of this, you would benefit from “seasoned” online professionals, who will make your online learning experience a positive one. see Program details.
