Business Administration Faculty

The business program faculty is diverse, not only in education but in experience and talent, bringing together a robust program that allows for broad interests and needs, from self-employee entrepreneurial interests to ministerial non-profit and management interests. The program is designed to expose students to the important pillars of good business, but allow students to seek their specialty through the Senior thesis/capstone project. Here students select their advisors and can pursue the study of business that not only interests them but may reveal practical inroads into the goals they may wish to pursue.
