Williamson College is serious about the integration of biblical thinking with professional pursuits.
This major is designed to equip students to lead for – and non-profit organizations, not only in the maximization of stockholder wealth but also for the greater good of the community and world. Students at WC are challenged to think biblically and analytically in order to develop solutions for some of the most intractable problems facing mankind in the 21st century.
At WC, we believe business pursuits can be a noble purpose and, when subservient to God’s sovereignty, a calling that can be fully God-honoring and useful in the encouragement and expansion of His Kingdom. Therefore, our students are challenged to think in an interdisciplinary way; that is, to study across a spectrum of subjects including church leadership, spiritual formation, and biblical ethics. By doing so, our graduates are equipped and empowered to think globally, as well as locally, in collaborating cross-culturally to advance the mission of their organization.
This major requires completion of 122 credit hours.
Graduating students will:
- Demonstrate an ability to think biblically, analytically, and managerially in addressing business and organizational problems within their community and world.
