Meet our network. Crowell puts a high value on building partnerships with kingdom-minded business leaders and organizations — creating opportunities for you to make career-transforming connections outside the classroom.
Crowell’s Mentor Program is a fundamental distinctive of the MBA and Master of Management programs. The one-on-one mentorship offered through this program provides students with the opportunity to connect with Christian businesspeople from a wide range of industries. Our mentors are devoted to spending significant time with their students, meaning this program is about more than just requirements — it’s about forging important, valuable relationships.
Crowell has been a top-tier partner school of the Praxis Academy since 2016. Praxis Academy is an annual gathering of Christian students from all across the country, with the purpose of equipping and motivating their vision of how business and social entrepreneurship — informed by faith and theology — will create and influence global culture. Biola University has been the host site for the Praxis Academy from 2016 to 2019 and has been invited to host the 2020 Praxis Academy — bringing together 250 students from 90 universities.
The Biola University Crowell School of Business is pleased to be a supporter of the Lausanne Movement’s Global Workplace Forum — most recently held in Manila, June 25–29, 2019. The Lausanne Movement’s Global Workplace Forum (GWF) and the Crowell School of Business are aligned in mission “to bring together a diverse range of influencers in order to mobilize the whole church — in every corner of the global workplace — as bearers of the gospel.”
