Business Management, B.S.

Business Management, B.S. Overview

What is Business Management?

Greenville University’s Bachelor of Science degree is designed to provide students an in-depth understanding of the essential functions that business professionals need to become effective in managing processes and people. The program explores all facets of business including marketing, finance, human resources, global management, entrepreneurship, operations management, ethics, and more. Students can expect to not only gain practical knowledge of how businesses operate, but will also develop the skills employers say they are looking for in employees such as the ability to communicate, solve problems, make ethical decisions, lead, work as a team, and relate well to others.

At Greenville University, we don’t believe there is a conflict between vocation and calling.  We believe that God grants each of us talents and abilities in order to fulfill a deeper calling on our lives through the vocations we choose. If you believe God has called you to a vocation in the business world, we want to help you prepare for that calling. Our courses are taught from a Christian world view that encourages the examination of current business practices from a Biblical perspective.
