Changes are Coming to LDS Business College Degrees
01 May. 2019
Empower your degree. LDS Business College is helping you save credits, time and money with changes to the way programs are structured. Our new degree offerings will help you get a job and/or make the transition to another school easier.
Beginning Fall 2019, you will have three streamlined degree options: Associate of Science (AS), Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and Certificates (Standard and Specialized). Whether your priority is getting the skills for a good job so you can transfer and continue your education, or building a comprehensive skill set to start your career immediately, we have a solution to get you there. Learn more about your choices below:
Associate of Science Degree (AS)
The new AS degrees are designed to be stackable, employable and transferable. The majority of programs at LDSBC will now be offered as transferable AS degrees. You can choose to include one or two certificates in your AS degree to help you further your skills and future career.
Credits from each certificate stack into your AS degree which, in turn, may stack into a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution.
Both the AS degree and all certificates are designed to meet entry-level job requirements.
The AS degree is regionally-accredited, meaning it’s designed to easily transfer to four-year institutions.
Associate of Applied Science Degree (AAS)
This is the option for you if you want to get a job right after your time at LDSBC. The following fields of study will offer AAS degrees:
- Cyber Security
- Interior Design
- Applied Technology
The AAS degree is considered a terminal degree. Meaning, these degrees are designed to help you get a job immediately after graduation and are not designed to transfer to another institution.
Certificates (Standard and Specialized)
The College currently offers and will continue to offer the following certificates. They can be included in your AS degree or studied separately.
- Business Analytics
- Digital Marketing
- Global Supply Chain & Operations
- Project Management
- Social Media Marketing
- Technical Support Engineer
- Interior Design
- Medical Assistant

In addition, the College will begin to offer the following new certificates in Fall 2019:
- Business Intelligence
- Professional Business Management (application process to enroll)
- Cloud & Systems Administration
- Computer Science

- Small Business Management (application process to enroll)

Our goal at LDS Business College is to quickly and economically prepare you with the industry knowledge and workplace skills employers want. You’ll gain fundamental critical thinking, communication, leadership and technical skills, and the hands-on expertise to excel in your field. We understand that your future financial success depends on the experience and tools you acquire now. That’s why we give you options.
These changes come with the approval of our regional accreditor and the Board of Trustees to better help fulfill the mission of the College.
To find out more how these changes affect you, review the Fall 2019 catalog, visit the LDSBC website and/or make an appointment with your academic advisor. We want to help you succeed – whether it’s by getting a job after graduation or continuing your education elsewhere. Be ready and stay informed.
