Business Management

Developing leaders is at the heart of CCU’s mission.

Program Description

Developing leaders is at the heart of CCU’s mission. The School of Business aims to meet this mission by producing business leaders with a service orientation who are prepared to navigate the complexity, ambiguity, and differing perspectives often encountered in today’s changing business environment. This program integrates faith into business curriculum without sacrificing program quality.

A Bachelors degree in Business Management or Organizational Leadership equips students with the tools necessary to be effective leaders in organizations with a variety of stakeholders. The sequence of courses covers core competencies that employers are looking for in their new hires: accounting, economics, organizational management, marketing, strategic planning, and information technology.

Students in the School of Business build a strong foundation in business leadership. The degrees in this program are perfect for learners who seek a career in corporate, nonprofit, or public administration. Individuals who complete the curriculum develop the management, interpersonal, and technical skills necessary to succeed in today's complex organizational environments. Students learn to manage strategically, communicate effectively, and apply cutting edge business principles in ways that create value for the organizations in which they work. Taught by qualified Christian faculty, the courses in this degree are rooted in the principles of the Christian faith and encourage the practice of servant leadership.
