Lincoln University-Coatesville offers select undergraduate and graduate programs in Business

LINCOLN UNIVERSITY, PA – The Middle States Commission on Higher Education recently approved Lincoln University’s plan to establish a campus in the city of Coatesville.

The University will begin offering courses this fall at the new Coatesville location, originally the Gordon Education Center at 351 Kersey Street.  Initially courses will be offered during the evenings and weekends and as enrollment grows classes will move toward traditional as well as accelerated undergraduate and graduate degree programs in Business.

“Once again, Lincoln University claims another first with its expansion to the city of Coatesville,” said Dr. Robert R. Jennings, university president.  “Lincoln University-Coatesville offers a great and convenient opportunity for a working adult, veteran or any other student who has already obtained an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in Business and wishes to further his or her professional career with an advanced degree.”

Interested students should contact Mrs. Erika Davis at (484) 365-7207 for undergraduate admissions and Ms. Stephanie Gibbs for graduate admissions at (215) 590-8233.
