Business administration ensures that you have the range of essential skills needed to be a proactive entrepreneur and leader. It increases your confidence as a business professional. It trains you to evaluate opportunities from a vocational perspective. And it equips you to integrate faith and work.
At Cornerstone, we equip you with the competencies and skills that employers seek. Area business competitions, student-led organizations and campus initiatives give you the chance to get involved and apply leadership principles beyond the classroom. For example, Enactus works to address local and international needs with sustainable solutions.
