I have been actively pursuing a career in accounting for more than twenty years, and have risen through the ranks to various leadership positions. Along the way, I have experienced a host of unethical business practices and immoral individuals. I have been put into positions of moral and ethical dilemma, which have impacted my faith in the ethical conduct of the business world today. It seems that too many individuals and companies are only concerned with getting ahead, beating out the competition, and being number one, at any cost. These feelings have only been compounded by the abundance of reports on corporate greed and misconduct that have been a dominant theme for the past twenty years. When I decided to take a leap of faith, and return to school for my MBA, I was initially concerned about the potential impact of going to a Christian university. I have experienced the prejudices of being a Christian, at the hands of non-Christians, throughout my career. What if potential employers were not comfortable with my MBA coming from a Christian university? Would this decision hurt my chances of getting a job or a promotion? I prayed on this dilemma, and God responded “Do you really want to work for a company that does not recognize the importance of living as a Christian, with outstanding moral and ethical beliefs? Haven’t you had enough of the deceit that seems to dominate business today?” I agreed that it was definitely time for a change and enrolled at Colorado Christian University. Several months later I secured a position as Finance Manager for a construction company that is in the process of growing tremendously, with strong Christian values. I am certain that I have made the right decision in attending CCU, and trust God to take my career to a new level as a result of standing strong and growing in Christian faith. The outstanding guidance provided by the faculty at Colorado Christian University will create strong, principled leaders for the future, and will have a significant impact on the moral and ethical fiber of business as a whole. There is hope for the future!
