Welcome to the Virginia Union University Sydney Lewis School of Business (SLSB). The SLSB is one of the premier Business Schools in the area. We have graduated many successful individuals who have become business owners, certified public accountants, financiers, and presidents of major corporations. We pride ourselves in preparing our students for the world of business by offering a world-class curriculum with faculty who has the academic and practical business experience. We have been accredited by the Association Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) for several decades and provide a number of relevant majors in the context of a liberal arts college.
Our strong foundation in the liberal arts enables students, as they live out their lives, to critically think and be successful as the world changes. Management Guru, Peter Drucker, stated:
“Management is what tradition used to call a liberal art ‘liberal’ because it deals with the fundamentals of knowledge, self-knowledge, wisdom, and leadership; ‘art’ because it deals with practice and application. Managers draw upon all of the knowledge and insights of the humanities and social sciences on psychology and philosophy, on economics and history, on the physical sciences and ethics. But they have to focus this knowledge on effectiveness and results.”In the SLSB, all of the majors start with a course in professional and ethical development as the beginning of our strong shared core of business courses. Students can major in Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Management, and Marketing. We collaborate with the Computer Information Sciences area to provide business classes for their Cybersecurity majors as well as supporting the Secondary Education Program in Business.
