Program Review

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive program of study in both economics and business and to guide students in their intellectual, moral, and spiritual growth. We desire for every student to:

  • attain quantitative and analytical skills
  • develop their reasoning and discernment
  • improve their written and oral communication skills
  • mature as inventive problem solvers, and
  • deepen their worldview about the intersection of faith and the marketplace

Ultimately, both faculty and students seek to glorify Jesus Christ by preparing businesswomen and men, lawyers, scholars and other professionals to use their foundational knowledge of economics and business to aid others and to improve society.
