Master of Business Administration

“The focus of the program is to teach students how to critically analyze issues that are facing business today and to make ethical decisions.”

- Jeff Boyce



Students in the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program design solutions and strategies for complex business problems and opportunities, evaluate personal management capabilities and design a plan for economic growth, and integrate critical analysis with disciplines such as management, accounting, finance, and economics. Students will synthesize ethical standards in decision-making and strategy development, create appropriate communication strategies to achieve organizational goals, and integrate a biblical framework that guides interactions within the business environment and workplace.
