What makes a Christian business person stand out in the marketplace?

A general degree in business, tied into Redeemer's interdisciplinary programs, sets students up to be successful employees and entrepreneurs. Skills are honed, theories and concepts are practiced, but what sets students apart is their work ethic, grounded in a Biblical framework that prepares them to be successful business people who are innovatively and creatively seeking new ways to shape and reflect Christ in the workplace.

Business is a Bachelor of Arts degree within the Business Department. It is offered as a major and as a minor.

Right from the start, Redeemer’s business degree programs build a solid foundation of concepts, models, and theories across the disciplines while also grounding you in a Biblical framework for meaningful business networking and practices.

Your first-year courses introduce you to the different disciplines within business studies — like marketing, management, and accounting — before digging deeper into a variety of topics. You have the flexibility to design a program tailored to your specific interest while also getting a broad and balanced understanding of all business disciplines.

Business The Core

The Core Curriculum is a set of 10 courses that every student takes. The courses are woven through every major and gets you to think deeply and broadly about what you’re studying. Think about it this way…

  • Entrepreneurs who understand historical trends and are effective collaborators are more successful in their business ventures.
  • Managers are more capable leaders when they understand the psychosocial needs of their employees.
  • Accountants interpret more effectively when they understand the people and processes behind the data.

In the Classroom

In your classes, you will build a solid foundation across the disciplines in sources like Management Information Systems, Business Ethics, and Entrepreneurship. Small classes taught by dedicated professors who are experts in their field mean you will conduct and critically assess research as you review the methods, concepts and findings of contemporary business practices.

Beyond the Classroom

In Redeemer’s business program, Prof. Susan Van Weelden, Prof. Laurie Busuttil and their colleagues are advancing the case method, an experiential learning approach for business students where students take on the role of managers in a variety of industries, organizations and scenarios. This case method provides a way for students to practice and gain confidence in their management skills.
