Management: Lead in Business with Integrity and Purpose

Exceptional managers and business administrators know how to guide and inspire others while making wise, strategic business decisions.

In PCC’s management concentration, you’ll develop knowledge and skills in multifaceted business topics such as accounting, statistics, finance, economics, entrepreneurship, communication, logistics management, and computer applications. As you work on individual and group projects and presentations throughout the program, you’ll build your ability to communicate and collaborate. Skilled faculty with a wealth of real-world experience will teach you how to organize, analyze, and interpret data: equipping you to make well-informed choices as you lead your team members effectively.

Because of the business program’s broad, Bible-based liberal arts foundation—with emphasis on critical thinking and practical application—you’ll be ready to quickly adapt in a field known for its rapid change.

With versatile business skills and a solid grounding in biblical principles, you’ll be thoroughly prepared to step into the business world as a knowledgeable, successful Christian leader.

Faith-Based Management

PCC’s management courses emphasize the importance of upholding biblical and ethical standards as students prepare to become successful managers and Christian business leaders. You’ll be encouraged to develop biblical leadership qualities such as integrity, honesty, and professionalism—ready to face future dilemmas with the confidence that God’s Word is your trustworthy, all-sufficient moral guide.

“I frequently tell my students that I do not see them as students: I see them as workers, managers, and leaders. My goal for each class and for every day we meet is for the students to learn something they can take directly from the classroom to the workplace.

Based on feedback I get from emails, calls, and messages, it is making a difference. I often get messages asking if I remember telling my class a particular illustration or covering a topic; this is then followed by ‘I was able to use that at work today!’

One thing we strive to do at PCC is make a real difference in people’s lives. We do that by being authentic—the real deal. Business faculty have industry experience, and all of us have active Christian testimonies. Our graduates are ready to practice their profession, they get accepted to graduate programs in accounting, finance, and other areas at a high rate, and they advance rapidly in their careers. But, more than that, they are ready to truly make a difference in the world. ”

“I credit my degree from PCC as a significant factor in enabling me to make the most of each opportunity for career advancement. PCC helped me develop many skills that have been critical for my career development. On a given day, I might start by learning how to carry out a specific cost accounting function, proceed to a course on statistical standard deviation, continue into a lesson on how to market to customers, and end by working on a group project with a team selected from my class on public relations.

Because of the variety of skills I learned, I was confident in being able to find a position rapidly upon graduation. My expectation was borne out—I had a job offer lined up four months before I graduated.

Most important of all, PCC helped mold my worldview to prioritize serving God and serving those around me. Each interaction with a customer or coworker is an opportunity to lead by showing Christ-like service! The Christ-centered education PCC provides is especially significant as the cultural shift in the United States has continued moving further from God. The biblical work ethic, focus on serving others, and commitment to integrity that is normal at PCC helps set people apart in a secular workforce.”
