After coming to Christ, Tingting Liu (M.B.A. '19) wanted to continue to learn in an environment that would strengthen her faith. She began her Master of Business Administration to grow in her practical knowledge in business but also in her Christian worldview.

As a single mom working in a job that wasn't her dream career, Kacey Spencer (B.S. '12) decided to finish her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree to make a change in her life.
