Business Administration Major

Business Administration Department

Business Administration learners obtain a broad-based education that not only gives them business expertise and real-world preparation, but contributes to their proficiency in communication and analytical skills needed for successful performance in today’s economy. We also make enough electives available in the program to enable learners to focus on an area of personal interest or expertise, such as marketing, in which learners may thrive. Taught from a biblical perspective integrating faith and practice  business courses equip learners with knowledge of the best current business practices, skills that are essential in the marketplace, and biblical character development opportunities to become Christian servant leaders with strong ethical and moral standards in commerce, industry, nonprofits, Christian ministries, etc.
