Through market-centric programming, deep business-to-education collaboration, and a dedicated career mentor, the Lacy School of Business (LSB) equips its students with the skills and knowledge to sharpen their competitive edge. 

LSB not only requires that every student have two internships; we also help you secure them. All of our students start a business in their second year, and experiential opportunities are incorporated into business courses each semester. 

The combination of a Butler education plus four years of real-world business experience and professional career mentoring is reflected in the success of our graduates, many of whom land positions right out of college that are intended for professionals with three or more years of work experience.
