About Lutgert College of Business

Your success is our business

The Lutgert College of Business building opened in 2008 and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees.

We were an early contributor to the founding and development of Florida Gulf Coast University by bringing together the business and educator communities. Over the past 20 years we have ascended along with FGCU to become a highly respected part of the Florida university system, and have helped the university play a central role as a catalyst for the economy of Fort Myers and the southwest Florida region.

Undergraduate degrees in Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, and Interdisciplinary Entrepreneurship Studies are offered. Graduate degrees in Accounting & Taxation, Information Systems & Analytics, and Business Administration (MBA) are offered. Also housed within the LCOB is the School of Resort & Hospitality Management which offers students the unique opportunity to gain supervised field work experience at one of many resorts and spas in the area. The School of Resort & Hospitality Management offers majors in either Resort & Hospitality Management or PGA Golf Management.
