Concentration in Business and Leadership (18 hours)

The Business and Leadership concentration provides an excellent foundation for students to move directly into a business management role or to further their studies in business and leadership. Students will gain practical knowledge of best practices in leadership, marketing and accounting, as well as helpful insight into theoretical frameworks for understanding accounting and business ethics. Viewing business as one expression of loving God and loving our neighbor is a driving value for this concentration.

The program contains courses in economics, marketing, accounting, planning, communication, and leadership, all from a Kingdom perspective.

In addition to the general objectives for the Associate in Biblical Studies degree, it is intended that study within this program will prepare students to:

  • Articulate a business vision and practice from a Kingdom mindset
  • Lead and manage business in harmony with biblical principles
