School of Business and Leadership

Welcome from Dean Underwood
The School of Business and Leadership is committed to developing thought leaders with an entrepreneurial spirit through an interdisciplinary curriculum that is grounded in five core values: Social Relevance, Academic Excellence, Global Engagement, Intentional Diversity, and Personal Transformation.
Through our undergraduate and graduate programs, SBL seeks to foster learning environments that prepare students for a career of service and leadership that enables them to positively transform organizations, individuals and society.
Our pedagogical approach focuses on an action-based learning model that integrates theory, research and application to real world issues.
Our academically rigorous curriculum is taught by highly qualified faculty who bring a mixture of scholarship, and applied experience in business, faith-based and non-profit organizations.
The School of Business and Leadership consists of four academic programs; A.S./B.S. in Business Administration or Accounting, Organizational Management (OM - degree completion program), Master in Business Administration (MBA), and Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL).
