School of Business

Welcome to the Grace College School of Business!

We believe that God created us to do meaningful work that would be both glorifying to Him and meet the needs of others as we imitate His creativity and character.  As image bearers, we are designed to be creators and cultivators in a true spirit of biblical stewardship.  We teach business practice with an eye to bringing peace and prosperity to the communities we are called to serve (Jer. 29:7).  What a thrill to be part of God's bigger plan as we bless those around us with His blessing and abundance!

The Grace College School of Business strives to create an experiential learning environment that inspires students to embrace biblically based ethical character, develop professional competence, and demonstrate active service where they live and work.  Grace College's business programs provide preparation for entry into a variety of business occupations as well as a foundation for graduate study. 

Core courses, along with the liberal arts requirements, provide substantive undergraduate coverage of the functions of the business firm, an understanding of the environment of business and human behavior, and an opportunity to develop one's personal Christian commitment and moral reasoning ability. Grace College has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE) located at:

The Grace College School of Business emphasizes biblical integration across the curriculum. We believe that God's Word provides guidance and understanding for business decision making even in our modern world.  The School of Business offers a myriad of opportunities for hands on learning from running your own micro-business on campus to assisting local businesses solve their own challenges.  The Gordon Institute for Enterprise Development provides an outlet for entrepreneurial creativity by sponsoring events, assisting local organizations and holding an annual Business Plan Competition.  Our co-curricular professional development program called the Career Institute was designed to help students discover their God given passions and talents in such a way that it will help focus their studies on preparing for the career God has for them in the future.  We believe that our dedication to biblical integration, providing opportunities for experiential learning, and personal mentoring makes Grace a compelling choice among business programs at Christian colleges.
