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.

The student majoring in Business will:

  • Present persuasive oral and written cases for business decisions.
  • Demonstrate effectiveness in leading, using, and participating in teams.
  • Create effective business networks using various platforms to create contacts with practitioners, employers, and mentors. 
  • Assemble and analyze information from disparate sources to create new understandings and solutions to unanticipated problems. 
  • Integrate conventional management science with their Christian beliefs, in real-world settings with both Christian and non-Christian colleagues. 
  • Create a five-year life plan built on research in their areas of interest.

Our curriculum emphasizes experiential learning where you learn by doing. Opportunities include:

  • Directed studies and faculty-mentored research opportunities
  • Internships and field studies
  • Capstone Projects

A B.S. in Business Management, you’ll be well equipped to climb the corporate ladder, drive change in a large non-profit, or start your own Kingdom Business venture. You’ll develop the relevant skills, knowledge, and insights to get ahead.

What You'll Take

A special feature of the Sattler College experience is its extensive Core Curriculum. We believe students are more likely to flourish socially and intellectually when each entering class enjoys a common academic experience. When all students take part in a common set of courses, upper-level students will have a large body of wisdom and knowledge to share with the students following behind them. We are convinced that the most fulfilling way to learn is to teach. Our robust Core Curriculum makes such.
