Business Administration

The Business Administration major is designed to provide students with a biblical business framework. This major is designed to prepare students for graduate studies, business ministry opportunities, and careers in business by shaping student knowledge, skills, and development. Students can choose from three different specializations: Management, Marketing, and Computer Information Systems. By emphasizing core business principles along with moral, ethical, and biblical values, our goal is for students to graduate as critical thinkers who are able to identify problems, collect data, weigh alternatives, and implement solutions from within the context of a Christian worldview.

"I chose Simpson because I wanted to not only play basketball, but also to better my relationship with God."Mark K.

"As a Christian, integrating my faith with my education is important, and Simpson has allowed me to do just that. As a Business Major, I feel comfortable taking what I've learned in the classroom, and translating it into the business world. Simpson University is a place where individuals gather together to serve God. The phrase "Community - Our Responsibility" is clearly demonstrated."Jessica L.

"The class sizes allow for more connection to the faculty. Professors make themselves available to students on a personal level because they prefer to work at Simpson, and in the small Christian college environment."Scott G.

"Simpson offers an incredibly quality Accounting program full of professors with solid knowledge and experience in the accounting and general business realm. I have enjoyed taking advantage of the smaller classrooms by getting answers to businesses and career questions. I came to Simpson originally because my parents agreed to pay for the first year if I went to a Christian college - this is why I stayed."Arin G.

"Over the summer I had an internship at Enterprise Rent a Car. For the month of August, I was ranked #2 in sales for our branch and the Visalia section. This is proof that I learned a lot in my businesses classes, from aspects of marketing, to management, and business strategy. My professors have prepared me for what the real world holds."Humberto S.
