Mission Statement

The mission of the College of Business and Computer Science is to provide educational programs in business, accounting, and computer and information sciences that integrate theories, concepts, and experiential applications with a Christian worldview.

The College of Business and Computer Sciences integrates theories, concepts, and experiential applications with a Christian worldview.

In addition to providing a strong and rigorous curriculum in each of our specialties, our duty as Christian scholars is to help frame both our discipline and the practice of that discipline within a biblical and more specifically, a Christian context. This commitment to integrate discipline with Christian faith and practice begins with faculty prayer and extends to faculty sharing their testimonies with advisees and with classes in an appropriate and balanced manner.

The College has adopted Psalm 15 as a guiding principle for our students. The College is specifically dedicated to producing Psalm 15 Professionals for servant leadership roles in business and computer science. Using Psalm 15 as a basis, eight character traits that should be hallmarks of students and graduates of the College have been identified. These character traits are highlighted each semester and include: Integrity, Service, Respect, Charity, Faithfulness, Truthfulness, Humility, and Perseverance.

Specialized Accreditation

The College is nationally accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP).
