...our business students learn to incorporate their faith into their work and to serve as the ethical compass. Because of this, they go into the business world with a foundation on which to approach not only business decisions but personal and social issues as well. This is in stark contrast to worldviews that reject absolute truth and the submission to a higher purpose.
