The Department of Business provides broad preparation for the Christian to lead and serve effectively in business and society, offering three degree programs: the associate of arts, the bachelor of business administration, and the bachelor of science. Students pursuing the B.B.A. choose from majors in Accounting, Management, or Marketing, taking 18 credit hours of advanced classes in their major. Students pursuing the B.S. degree may also choose to emphasize a particular business subject in their selection of business electives. Students graduating with a B.B.A. or B.S. also earn a Minor in Biblical Studies.
The department also offers minors in the following areas:
- Accounting (for all majors)
- Business administration (for nonbusiness majors)
- Sports management (for business majors)
- Music business
Our purpose is to prepare students to glorify God through Christ-centered leadership and vocational excellence in business professions. The need for Christian business leaders has never been greater than it is today, and Point graduates with a degree in business administration are equipped to go out into their chosen fields and demonstrate not only an exemplary knowledge of business practices and principles, but also a firm foundation in Christian principles.
At Point, business students know that their professors care about them personally and academically. Professors not only have outstanding education and experience credentials, but also are active in local church congregations and professional organizations. Class sizes are small, allowing professors to get to know each student’s gifts and aspirations. In addition, professors welcome interaction with students outside of class, and they can frequently be seen working with students in their offices or socializing with students around campus. By providing a caring, professional, Christian example, professors can influence the lives of students in a more meaningful way and help them achieve their personal and career goals.
Although the field of business is broad, the Department of Business assists students in selecting the career direction that best fits their own desires and abilities. We offer two baccalaureate degrees: a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration that provides broad exposure to the different subject areas in business as well as the liberal arts, and a more specialized Bachelor of Business Administration that enables students to major in Accounting, Management, or Marketing. Both degrees are designed to give students the business acumen and personal capabilities necessary to succeed both personally and professionally. Applied learning is crucial to both programs, and class projects frequently involve solving real-world problems for local companies. In addition, an internship is required for the B.B.A. and strongly recommended for the B.S. These experiences allow students to apply knowledge gained through coursework to the practical demands of a business environment. In the process, students learn much about themselves and gain valuable work experience and contacts.
