Why Study Cross-Cultural Business Administration
The Cross-Cultural Business Administration major integrates biblical principles with business principles to prepare students in the area of international business. With knowledge of cross-cultural principles, a student in this major is enabled to enter limited access countries with a marketable skill. This could be as a mission field business manager, developing micro-enterprises, or serving as international workers with a multinational business or another organization requiring these skills.
Graduates are prepared to help develop economically viable community projects that enhance the living standard of communities, as well as financial resources to aid the local and worldwide community. This degree establishes the international worker in an acceptable role in communities that disparage professional religious workers. The Cross-Cultural Business Administration major integrates the pursuit of truth with godly character to produce marketplace professionals with cross-cultural and business knowledge and skills for service with faith communities through international business, cross-cultural employment, and nonprofit organizations.
