Online A.S. in Business

This two-year program will enable the student to develop the character and skills necessary for efficiency as an accounting clerk, office manager, or other office worker. The increasing demand by our denominational offices, churches, and Christian schools for bookkeepers and business managers calls for the integrated preparation that a Bible-centered business curriculum offers. This kind of education is equally valuable to those who serve as Christian witnesses in the business world. The Associate of Science degree in Business may be earned entirely online. All graduates of this program should be able to:

  • demonstrate Christian principles, values, and responsible stewardship in life and work;
  • demonstrate appropriate office skills including communication (oral and written), computer skills, and basic accounting skills.
