Strong Business Principles
Since 1997, the business department at Huntington University has grown by 37 percent while the economics track within the business program has seen a 300 percent increase. Our business program attempts to instill in its students a Christian foundation for making business decisions. Students who have enrolled in the program have focused their energies on how both textbook and real world experiences apply in the business world.
“Our program helps students apply theories and concepts they’ve learned in class to practical, real-world problems,” says economics professor Dr. Ann McPherren. “Our goal is not just to train business people, but to educate the heart and mind – to grow young people into effective stewards.”
