The mission of the Frank D. Hickingbotham School of Business is to educate undergraduate students in business administration and accounting in a church-related, traditional residential liberal arts university where values, leadership, and ethics are modeled and taught. In accordance with the university mission and in partnership with all areas of the university, the school seeks growth in each student through intellectual, spiritual, social, and physical pursuits.
The primary purpose of the school is to provide quality education in business and accounting in a Christian environment. We believe the educational process should foster critical thinking skills in order to prepare the student for life's experiences and, further, that students who are properly instructed and advised are more likely to succeed. In addition to classroom teaching, we provide opportunities to participate in non-classroom settings to expand the horizons of students.
The school offers three majors: accounting, finance and business adminstration. The business adminstraion major offers four areas of emphasis: finance, information Systems, management, and marketing. The school has 10 full-time faculty members plus the dean.
We strive to do one thing exceedingly well--we seek to prepare undergraduate business students for life. And, based on the performance of our graduates, we see no good reason to change our focus! Our students are more than just a number. They are our priority.
