Dr. Jody Hirschy, Business Department Chair and Professor of Marketing, shares how faculty in Taylor's business department equip students to be excellent Christian business professionals.
Rise up. Be an excellent Christian business professional
You are thinking about getting a degree in business. Maybe you want to use your gifts to create new products or companies, analyze numbers, or create marketing plans. You want to be a leader who does business ethically by serving people and making a difference for God’s kingdom, whether you're doing business as missions or working for a Fortune 500 company, the government, or a non-profit.
Housed in the Reade Liberal Arts Center, Taylor's ACBSP-accredited business program offers majors in finance, accounting, marketing, and management. Each major can equip you with an exceptional education and the faith integration you need to thrive at places like Accenture, Eli Lilly and Company, Wal-Mart Corporate, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte & Touche, KPMG, and Ernst & Young.
Starting with our Business Basics Boot Camp course, you will develop business skills by using them. You’ll take those skills you are acquiring and build on them by being involved in Enactus, a business organization students can participate in, or managing $2 million of University money with Taylor’s Endowment Teams.
