Introducing LTU Online “Flexible Learning for Busy Professionals”

LTU Online is here to serve your online education needs! Please contact us via e-mail at ltuonline@ltu.edu or by phone at 248-204-2380.

Lawrence Technological University Online is a new initiative charged with developing online courses for busy professionals like you. LTU Online courses began to be offered starting in Fall 2006 and initially include courses leading to degrees in Master of Business Administration, Master of Engineering Management, and Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, and graduate certificates in Project Management, Nonprofit Management, and Architecture Management. The vision of LTU Online is to eventually offer fully online degree and certificate programs. See the Fall 2006 and Spring 2007 schedules for LTU Online courses available for registration.

LTU has responded to the online learning movement and to the request of our students by establishing LTU Online. With this new initiative, our intention is not to follow but rather to lead in the delivery of online programs by using best practices, leveraging our significant technology resources, and designing courses that are true to our motto of “Theory and Practice.”

You are aware that you have many choices for enrolling in online course and degree programs. So why should you consider Lawrence Technological University? We believe that LTU Online is designed from the ground up to be an exemplary online learning program:

  • A Singular Mission – LTU Online is funded by the President and Provost with the mission of developing and delivering high-quality online courses.

  • Expert Faculty and Staff – LTU Online courses are developed by expert faculty members with industry experiences, assisted by skilled instructional developers using a formal methodology to insure that all courses are designed with the same high standards.
