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.

Our flagship major in Business Administration (BS) 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, business law, and quantitative analysis. This major does all of that. 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 non-profit organizations.

While each of our options in the Business Administration major offers a complete and practical understanding of important and marketable aspects of business, the business faculty emphasizes the interrelated dynamic of business knowledge for success. Therefore we strongly recommend that our students take two options together in their business program to better prepare them to succeed in a highly competitive market environment. We suggest the following combinations within the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Business Administration:

  • The Economics & Finance Option with the Management Option
  • The Economics & Finance Option with the Marketing Option
  • The Management Option with the Marketing Option

Economics & Finance Option

We consider the ideal, the free market system, but focus on how to function in the actual, the mixed market. This option presents a balanced combination of economics and finance to prepare the graduate to understand and manage the firm’s costs, cash flow, and profitability

Management Option

The Management option enables the graduate to be able to accomplish the goals of the organization through managing people. This option provides a skill-set that includes planning, organizing, leading, and controlling.

Marketing Option

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 necessary components of marketing
