LDS Business College


LDS Business College

LDS Business College (LDSBC) is a two-year college in Salt Lake City, Utah, focused on training students in business and industry. The college is owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and operates under the Church Educational System or CES and is associated with the Brigham Young University system of universities--Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah; Brigham Young University-Idaho in Rexburg, Idaho; and Brigham Young University Hawaii in Laie, Hawaii. Programs at the college include accounting, information technology, office technology, as well as programs in the medical field.

History

The college began as part of the Latter-day Saint University in Salt Lake City. LDS Business College never became a fully functioning university and was displaced as the preeminent LDS higher learning center by Brigham Young University in the early 20th century.

The college was closely linked with Latter-day Saint High School. The origin for both goes back to the Salt Lake Stake Academy which opened its doors in 1886. Among the graduates of the LDS High school were Gordon B. Hinckley and George Romney.

One of LDS Business College's Presidents was Bryant S. Hinckley.

For many years it was located in a former mansion along South Temple east of the Salt Lake Temple. As part of the Church of Jesus Christ's attempts to revitalize downtown Salt Lake City, LDS Business College moved to the Triad Center in the summer of 2006.
