The term “business leadership” recognizes that leadership within organizations goes beyond traditional management or business administration. It is not just marketing, finance, accounting or international business. It is broader, more general organizational leadership while satisfying all of the basic competencies of a business degree. Graduates will be equipped to be successful in business, leadership, and organizational planning within existing corporate structures, as well as entrepreneurs and business professionals in the global marketplace.
The business leadership program at Kuyper College has the following distinctive features: competency based learning, business as ministry, effective stewardship, and leadership. Through the careful integration of theology and business theory and practice, Kuyper’s business leadership program prepares you to be a globally competent business leader to serve in a variety of organizational settings. You will be challenged to develop a biblical and Reformed worldview that informs effective business practices in a variety of business contexts and cultural settings—intentionally merging and contextualizing both into something significantly different than either alone.
