There is no larger mission field than the business world and no place where the world can be more impacted by higher ethical standards. The Business Administration degree at Colorado Christian University is designed to develop a new generation of business professionals: men and women who are leaders, team players, delegators, doers, strategists, and practitioners. And what better way to learn what will be required of you in the business world than to study under CCU business professors who have outstanding, competitive academic credentials and relevant experience? Many professors have worked in law firms, Fortune 500 companies, high tech companies, or small firms – we even have a professor who is a former FBI agent. They have connections that can provide networking opportunities to help you get the most out of your experience at CCU.
Business Administration in the Christian University
With recent trends in corporate America, there is a rising demand for a new kind of business leader – one equipped with practical knowledge, sound decision-making skills, entrepreneurial vision, and an ethical focus. The world needs leaders who understand that "ethics" isn't just the topic of the day, but is central to how we operate in business and in everyday life. Leaders must understand that ethics is not a matter of relativism. Instead, ethics ought to be a product of natural law. Ethical rights and duties ought not be determined by what society decides is right and wrong. At CCU, we teach that ethics must rely upon an understanding of morality based upon Scripture and a Christian worldview. That is the difference that sets our business students apart.
In addition, by carefully selecting 500-level elective credits, business administration students can also earn up to 18 credit hours toward their CCU MBA degree while finishing their undergraduate business administration degree at no additional cost or time to graduation.
