Integrated Approach to Business
Most MBA programs focus on the financial priority in business - also known as "maximizing profits for shareholders."
We are committed to an integrated approach to business.
This means we equip you to pursue business that is 1) financially viable, 2) socially beneficial and compassionate, 3) spiritually respectful, and 4) environmentally responsible.
We refer to this as the integrated quadruple bottom line.
Practical Demonstration of Business Skills
Most MBA programs teach you concepts and skills which you will apply after you graduate.
Our MBA programs incorporate practical learning activities into every course.
And we set aside the final 9 credit hours of each MBA for a real-world Business Practicum during which you apply what you've learned in real business settings.
The result is that our graduates ready to apply their business skills immediately.
Multicultural Perspective Throughout
Most MBA programs either neglect the cross-cultural dimension of today's business environment, or relegate the topic to a separate course.
All of our courses incorporate a multicultural perspective into the weekly readings and assignments.
And our Business Practicums require you to apply your business skills in a multicultural business setting.
This means our graduates are ready to succeed in a globally connected and complex world with many cultures and belief systems.
Leadership Development While You Learn
Most MBA programs either neglect the leadership development of their students, or relegate the topic to a separate course that is siloed from the rest of the MBA courses.
All of our courses incorporate leadership development into the weekly readings and assignments.
This means that our graduates are ready to be effective business leaders.
Biblical Guidance for Morally Praiseworthy Business
Most MBA programs either neglect the topic of morality in business, or relegate it to a separate course (often an Ethics course or a Bible course) that is siloed from the rest of the MBA courses.
All of our courses incorporate relevant spiritual and moral topics, based on the Bible, as part of the weekly assignments.
We don't require our students to sign a Statement of Faith or believe everything that's in the Bible. But we do ask them to consider how the Bible can provide guidance in practical business situations.
This means that our graduates are ready to lead morally praiseworthy businesses.
