Stewardship matters.

Cornerstone University's finance major prepares you to be a knowledgeable and character-driven leader in the business world. Working with academics and real-world case studies, our program readies you to make decisions about budgets, resource allocations and investments. Your experience here will prepare you with applicable skills in corporate finance, economic development, insurance and risk management.

Our business classes discuss finance from a theological and spiritual perspective because finance professionals need to ask ethical questions. Professors take a holistic approach by incorporating biblical worldview applications in each class. In addition, we intentionally limit class sizes because we value relational learning. This means you'll receive more in-class attention from professors who are committed to seeing you thrive in your faith and work.

The Business Division is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.
