School of Business
The School of Business hopes to transform the lives of students through the highest quality business programs focused on the application of Christian values. There are three core principles embedded throughout the School of Business: (1) We integrate our faith with our discipline, thus producing graduates who consider the impact of Scripture on decision making; (2) Critical thinking is infused in the curriculum and students must support responses with logic, theory, and experience; and (3) Experiential learning is a hallmark of our academic pedagogy. In lower-level classes, this is accomplished with guest speakers or brief case applications. In upper-level courses, students experience hands-on projects, competing in a virtual industry, and solving comprehensive cases requiring extensive research with results presented in a classroom setting.
The School of Business offers the following programs, divided into on-campus undergraduate, on-campus graduate, and fully online:
- Business Administration
- Business Education/Corporate Training
- Healthcare Administration
- Information Systems
Our faculty are academically and professionally accomplished in the business world, and they are particularly focused on faith integration and why it’s crucial in business. Great teaching takes top priority with their considerable expertise in current research and practice serving to enhance their instruction. The entire business curriculum is built around the idea of learning by doing, and they constantly develop unique ways to teach through this method. Most of all, they love working with college students. These caring professionals trust students with difficult material because they are there in the process, believing in the student’s ability to overcome challenge and achieve mastery.
