Message from the Dean
Welcome to the Crowell School of Business, where we provide a distinctive approach to business leadership.
Business touches every area of contemporary life from the latest products to essential services, and we can’t live without the benefits today’s companies provide. But we regularly read about corporations or even whole industries that seem to stumble from one ethics-related crisis to another. We see failures of leadership at once-trusted brands that cast doubt on pursuing business as a career. Can business be conducted in a way that benefits society, builds profitable and sustainable companies, and is consistent with Christian faith?
At the Crowell School of Business, our faculty believe that business may be one of the most impactful career choices available for lives of service today. Whether in a public or private company, for profit or nonprofit, known brand or entrepreneurial startup, the knowledge and skills you gain at Crowell will be valuable for a lifetime of impact.
Why are we uniquely positioned to provide this distinctive approach to business leadership? Because Crowell's faculty, along with the other eight schools at Biola University, take the integration of faith and knowledge seriously as it applies to business, theology, the arts and sciences, humanities and more. Few business schools work so intentionally to pull from various academic and spiritual disciplines to equip students for lives of significance and impact. At Crowell, business education is designed so you learn and put into practice career-relevant business skills while engaging your faith and launching your career.
