Business Administration and Management
The mission of the Business Administration and Management program is to promote the intellectual, personal, and spiritual growth of our students and educate them in business and leadership principles to influence their non-profit/for-profit organizations, churches, professions, and cultures for the Kingdom of God.
Business Administration and Management, enterprise management, and innovative entrepreneurship are skills that both reflect the divine image in humans and advance God's redemptive purposes in the world. The Larger Story of God includes the stories of Abraham, Joshua, Deborah, Nehemiah, and others who owned properties, oversaw construction projects, assessed situations, and made strategic decisions. Business Administration is about the faithful and wise stewardship of resources and materials and the release of creativity and energy for the promotion of human flourishing.
Business Administration and Management embraces a Christian worldview and encompasses the full array of organizational management and leadership curricula including introduction to business administration, marketing, management/administration, finance, strategic planning, and theories of leadership.

The 21st century cannot afford to do business as usual. This program will develop highly skilled, multi-talented individuals through an emphasis on problem solving, critical thinking, and administrative leadership.
