Business Major - Bachelor of Science
The Business major is designed to prepare students for careers in profit-making or nonprofit corporations by combining a well-balanced program in business administration, liberal arts and sciences and biblical studies.

What will I study?
Business majors study broad areas of business such as accounting, management, entrepreneurship, finance, corporate strategies, marketing, business information systems, business law and economics. Many business classes take a case study approach that involves a less structured classroom environment utilizing small groups and discussion.
Business students are regularly exposed to interesting resources, literature and business professionals in the field. The department keeps up with current trends and advancements in business while maintaining its roots in more traditional areas, allowing for a well-rounded education.
