Students with 60 transferable units who want to complete their bachelor’s degree in organizational management now have an affordable, online, and uniquely biblical option at Life Pacific.

Life Pacific College continues to expand its degree offerings with a projected B.A. in Organizational Management slated to roll out in October 2018, pending WSCUC and ABHE accreditor approval.

The new online program is designed with the busy adult learner in mind, according to LPC Vice President of Enrollment, Angie Richey. She says the mobile, online format makes learning as close as the nearest internet connection. Students will find applicable coursework with relevant tools they can apply immediately or in future jobs and ministry assignments. Graduates can consider jobs in business management, organizational leadership, human resources, ministry leadership, and marketing management. 

Meeting a need of adult learners and students with jobs and families, the online program will fulfill a dream for many of earning a bachelor’s degree that may have seemed beyond reach. This program is for students with at least 60 transferable units who want to earn a bachelor’s degree in approximately 18 months as they prepare to serve as successful managers.

“Students will develop the business, organizational, and leadership knowledge and skills to manage organizations in a variety of contexts,” says LPC Academic Vice President Dr. Michael Salmeier. “Students will integrate biblical concepts and perspectives to care for people and resources ethically.”

The program will present course material from a biblical worldview, distinct from similar programs at other colleges, adding value to a student’s education, life, career, and ministry. The skills and principles learned can be applied immediately as students remain in their current locations and jobs. 

“Life Pacific is committed to developing Christian leaders for the Church and in business who engage their work as a form of ministry,” Dr. Salmeier says. In this program, he says students will develop skills in resource management, team-building, communication, critical thinking, and decision-making.

Vice President Richey says another benefit of the new program for adult learners is the affordable tuition.

“Life Pacific is committed to developing Christian leaders for the Church and in business who engage their work as a form of ministry,” Dr. Salmeier says. In this program, he says students will develop skills in resource management, team-building, communication, critical thinking, and decision-making.

The LPC website reports that students attending Life Pacific pay nearly half the cost of our competitors, making LPC the number one ranked most affordable private, regionally accredited, Christian college in California. The school ranks among the Top 20 Affordable Small Private Schools nationwide.
