Overview

The Management degree program is designed to provide adult learners the knowledge, attitudes, and skills to work as servant leaders in for-profit and non-profit organizations. The curriculum focuses on organizational and interpersonal skill development based on a Biblical worldview. For more information contact the program director, Shane Wood. This degree enables adult learners to be more effective Christ-like servant leaders who:

  • Demonstrate practical competency in elements associated with leading and/or managing an organization.
  • Identify important personalities and theories that feed into “best practices” of for-profit/non-profit leadership.
  • Develop evaluation skills in the assessment of an organization from a Christian ethic/worldview.
