Gain invaluable experience as a Student Missionary

Every year, a number of business students spend a year "Beyond the Classroom" as student missionaries. This work is exciting and challenging! It brings students in contact with the realities of world cultures and provides them with work experiences that complement their studies. Students may serve in a variety of positions including teachers, construction workers, and hospital administrators. Student missionaries bless the people they serve, and receive a blessing in return!

Get the opportunity to experience another culture

An increasing number of business majors also choose to spend a year studying abroad. Students are immersed in the culture and life of another country while becoming conversant in its language. Through such experiences students also may gain an appreciation of and perhaps an inspiration for mission or other multi-cultural service.
