Business Administration '15
I may not have been called to global mission fields like some friends at Biola, but God can still use us in our businesses to further his kingdom.

How did your program at Biola prepare you for your career?

The business school and professors instilled in me that business is ministry. I may not have been called to global mission fields like some friends at Biola, but God can still use us in our businesses to further his kingdom. Many of the classes that I took taught me to be a servant leader and lead like Jesus.

What did you appreciate most about your time at Biola?

I appreciated the community the most. The people are so genuine and I have come away with lifelong friends and men that stood by me on my wedding day. And my orientation leader turned out to be my wife so can't complain about that either.

How did Biola equip you to be a more faithful follower of Jesus Christ?

Biola taught me business doesn't have to be a cutthroat world, that you can be successful while still standing by your morals.

What advice would you give to students considering your degree program?

The professors are incredible! Some have stayed in touch even after graduation. I don't think there are many other schools in the country where professors willingly grab meals with students and even open their homes to students.
