LDS Business College is to be renamed to Ensign College on September 1, 2020.
This is because they are more than just business. President Bruce C. Kusch joins us to talk about their unique approach to education and options to pursue certificates and degrees completely online in the Fall of 2021. He goes on to say the school is founded on a rich legacy and the symbolism of an ensign and literally being in the shadow Ensign Peak is so exciting to us. Find out more about their limited number of bachelor’s degrees in Fall 2021 and how a student can begin the progress today towards a bachelor’s degree from Ensign College.
