SCHOOL OF BUSINESS

Why Business at Southern?

The School of Business at Southern integrates faith and business to prepare students for professional careers.

We provide a broad background knowledge of the free enterprise system within a framework of moral and ethical guidelines.

The skills developed in a business degree are highly-transferrable among and within multiple industries.

Students develop non-textbook skills such as the so-called ‘soft skills,’ which allows them to develop a wholistic entrepreneurial mindset.

We strive to train Christ-centered leaders who are globally focused while caring about their communities and workplace.

Our business graduates score above national and state averages for certification on senior exit exams and professional certifications.

Beyond the Classroom

Academic programs are complemented with practical learning experiences in the community and beyond.

International Study Tours

International tours are offered each summer for students to study business and commerce in another country. Trips alternate between China and Europe, where students experience international business within its natural environment.
