About the School

Northwestern seriously considers the Lord’s charge to equip the saints. To that end, the School of Business is dedicated to providing the necessary tools for our alumni to function within a business climate and prepare for graduate programs, while devoting one’s life to serving the Lord. Moral and ethical considerations are integrated within all courses. Scripture demands that we serve as good stewards of the resources and talents with which the Lord entrusts us. A fully integrated business curriculum provides a graduate with the abilities and skills to apply within a secular or church-related field.
