About Crowell School of Business

Preparing the Kingdom-Minded for the Business Realm.

Success in business takes more than a calling. Success requires resolve. At the Crowell School of Business, we welcome the resolute: kingdom-minded professionals who are driven to make a difference in and through their work. Through our innovative graduate and undergraduate programs, we prepare students of all levels and backgrounds to thrive in business while serving Christ.

Founded in 1993, the Crowell School of Business is a leader among Christ-centered business schools, offering several programs accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Biola University is consistently ranked among the nation’s foremost Christian universities — including a ranking in the first tier of national universities by U.S. News and World Report.


Crowell is a place where leaders connect. Our partnerships with key organizations and business professionals provide valuable learning and mentorship opportunities for students.

Student Achievement

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. For reference, see an excerpt from our Measurement and Analysis of Student Learning and Performance, and Organizational Results for 2018–2022 for the BUSN, ACCT, MBA and MPAcc programs.
