This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. Ensign College was established in 1886 in Salt Lake City by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It is led today by President Bruce Kusch who shares “the rest of the story.”
It’s been an exciting time since our name was changed two years ago from LDS Business College to Ensign College. Today we offer bachelor’s degrees in Business Management, Communications, Information Technology, and more.
Each year we welcome nearly 3,000 students to our campus and, through our partnership with the online BYU-Pathway program, we serve over 5,000 students globally. We’re confident that number will continue to grow because our skills-based curriculum prepares students with the training employers demand.
Speaking of employers, we recently created the Ensign Center for Employer Connections—a hub for students and companies to work on projects and internships. The center is also a business incubator for student entrepreneurs where they can develop their ideas under the guidance of successful professionals.
At Ensign College we speak of days never to be forgotten and we look forward to many more. Check out our website ensign.edu for more.
LDS Church President Russell M. Nelson is an alumni of Ensign College, a place where he learned to write in shorthand, a skill that he still uses daily today as the leader of that global faith. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, Speaking on Business.
