Bachelor of Arts in Business Leadership

Overview & Academics

The Bachelor of Arts in Business Leadership consists of general business courses in the areas of organizational and international leadership development designed within a Christian ministry framework. The entire curriculum has a strong multicultural dimension, albeit from a Hispanic perspective.

The program seeks interaction with the other curricular offerings in Biblical and Theological Studies with the purpose of providing a spiritual foundation for all aspects of leadership independent of the setting in which it is exercised. Students majoring in Business Leadership may also select a concentration area from the other academic majors offered by the University, though doing so will require extra hours beyond the 120 otherwise required for the major.

Student Learning Outcomes:

Demonstrate knowledge in business and leadership best practices
Exhibit interpersonal and transcultural skills in business and leadership practices
Evidence biblical ethical values for practice in the profession
Exhibit servant leadership skills in life and profession

 

The minimum number of semester credit hours required for the Bachelor of Arts in Business Leadership, including the Core Curriculum requirements, is 120.

As a graduation requirement, all students must take four semesters of Chapel attendance, and six semesters of Christian Service Program.
