Meet Your Major-Business

As a business administration major, you’ll prepare for the rapidly changing global marketplace by building a strong foundation in accounting, finance, management, and marketing.

The business major is designed to launch students as Christian business leaders: firm in their convictions and equipped with the skills necessary to start a company providing social benefit, lead a family business, or serve Kingdom purposes at a larger organization. Courses are built around small class sizes and are led by professors who provide students the benefit of both real business experience and academic credentials. Professors support students as they develop the capabilities needed to grow, adapt, and lead in an ever-changing business world.
