The Department of Business defines business as purposefully bringing together and effectively utilizing people, financial, and other resources to accomplish a mission with excellence. The mission may be either for-profit or nonprofit. Business success requires professionals in accounting, computer information systems, finance, human resources, marketing, and management. The mission of the department is to develop people with the skills and abilities to examine complex business situations with a christian worldview and to act with integrity and character as they serve with excellence in the global marketplace.
Our vision is to be recognized as a premier, faith-based, school of business using great programs to develop great minds in great people who are driven by excellence and inspired by faith to impact the world. The business department has obtained Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) accreditation after demonstrating the quality of its programs.
Our business programs are personal and practical. Highly qualified instructors become personal advisors to help students recognize career choices and guide them through their course work. Many of the professors have “real world” experience in the areas they teach. Students have opportunities to visit companies, participate in real projects, gain practical experience, and develop team skills through classroom activities and projects, internships, and participation in student-led organizations such as Enactus. Students also have the opportunity to participate in our Student Investment Group which makes the financial decisions for an investment portfolio of more than $480,000.
Best of all, we encourage a Christian worldview of business. We've been doing it this way since the opening of the University in 1955. Our graduates have the values, integrity and character that are highly desired by successful organizations. Our business alumni have distinguished themselves as leaders in all areas of business as well as in their communities and churches.
The objectives of the Department include the following:
For traditional students, the Department of Business offers a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) degree with comprehensive majors in accounting, business education, computer information systems, finance, management, marketing, and nonprofit business & social enterprise. The Department also offers an Associate of Arts in Business Administration degree. Concentrations in accounting, management, marketing, and nonprofit business & social enterprise enable students with another major or concentration to also develop a strong focus in business. Minors in accounting, computer information systems, finance, human resource management, management, marketing, international business, and nonprofit business & social enterprise provide opportunities for business and non-business majors to complement their majors with knowledge in a specific business area.
Working adults seeking a business degree can enroll in the accelerated Bachelor of Science in Management program which is offered as an online program. See the Adult Education section of this catalog for program information.
Accelerated Master’s Programs. A consortium agreement with Missouri State University (MSU), located in Springfield, enables Evangel business majors to pursue a master’s degree in Accountancy, Business Administration, or Health Administration concurrent with undergraduate work at Evangel. Students may enroll in up to 9 credit hours in the MSU master's program and apply those credits to fulfill requirements or electives for their Evangel University undergraduate major. Financial aid and billing for courses at MSU are managed as if the courses were taken at Evangel.
To enhance their education, business majors are encouraged to:
Students entering their junior and senior years with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher are eligible to apply for Department of Business scholarships and a variety of endowed and private scholarships.

Business majors may elect to take some of their business courses while spending a semester or summer abroad through programs approved by Evangel University. Some of these opportunities are offered through the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
