Our objective is for students to acquire a knowledge, proficiency, and vision of business through the lens of Scripture, which will enable you to make wise and ethical decisions in a society that challenges Christians’ ability to do both.

The flagship offering from the Department of Economics and Business is the Business Administration (B.S.) major. It is intended for students interested primarily in entering and competing in the field of business. In business you must understand a wide range of disciplines, including accounting, economics, finance, management, marketing, information technology, business law, and quantitative analysis. This major does all of that, while being presented with a biblical, free-market perspective. It is the recognized major that will prepare you for careers in areas ranging from traditional for-profit business including corporate leadership, small business enterprise, manufacturing, marketing, banking, retailing, and accounting, to positions of responsibility in non-profit organizations.

With this major you will choose one or more options in Economics and Finance, Management, or Marketing.

  • The Economics and Finance Option provides practical training for the financial management of the business or organization. We consider the ideal to be the free market system, but focus on how to function in the actual mixed market of today. The option presents a balanced combination of economics and finance to prepare the graduate to understand and manage personal, and organizational costs, cash flow, and profitability, within the broader context of our economy.
  • The Management Option provides a skill-set that prepares the graduate to plan, organize, lead, and control people and resources to meet organizational objectives.
  • The Marketing Option prepares the graduate to manage the various aspects of marketing, offering an effective product, presented at the right price, properly promoted to the relevant market, and distributed effectively. This option is built on developing the research tools necessary to properly focus the essential components of marketing.

Because the business faculty emphasizes the interrelated dynamic of business knowledge for success, we strongly recommend that our students take two options together in their business program to better prepare them for a highly competitive market environment.
