The mission of the Crowell School of Business is to equip students to develop a biblical worldview so as to see business as ministry:
Biola University, through its Crowell School of Business, is nationally accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs to offer a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree with concentrations in the following: Accounting, Information Systems, International Business, Management, Marketing and Marketing-Management.
Each program is structured to give the student broad understanding of the social and economic environment in which Christian business persons function, and provides a common body of knowledge for students who elect this major. Students study economics, finance, management, business law, accounting, and marketing as the core of the major based upon quantitative management skills. The six individual concentrations prepare students through additional specified courses to enter a career field in those areas, or to select a graduate school upon graduation. It is the purpose of the Crowell School of Business to prepare highly skilled, technically competent business persons who have broad preparation in the liberal arts as well, and who can make significant contributions in the workplace or in Christian organizations they may serve.
The Crowell School of Business has been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) since 1997 and we were reaffirmed in 2007. Every two years the School provides a Quality Assurance Report to the ACBSP to continually monitor our accordance of the ACBSP standards and criteria for maintaining accreditation.
Business schools and programs must have an outcomes assessment program with documentation of the results and evidence that the results are being used for the development and improvement of the institution’s academic programs. The Crowell School of Business is responsible for developing its own outcomes assessment program.
