Business Management Major

APU’s business management major prepares students to lead. The degree provides a solid business foundation covering accounting principles, business law, international business, finance, economics, statistics, and marketing. Students then focus on special areas of interest corresponding with their individual career goals.

The program features business faculty who remain connected to businesses and nonprofit organizations in their areas of expertise and who research in their specific disciplines. Students also have the opportunity to participate in organizations such as Enactus and serve their community, solving real-world business problems with what they learn in the classroom.

In addition to practical business knowledge, the program explores a Christian’s place in the business world and the principles of ethical decision making. Students are challenged to formulate a plan for the integration of their Christian faith into their business and personal goals to impact the world. Business management majors leave APU ready to lead with integrity.

Students may choose to complete an MBA immediately upon graduation through the Young Executive MBA program or the Millennial MBA program. Both programs are accelerated, intensive, and experience based, allowing the student to complete a master’s degree in one additional year.
