What We Are About

School of Business and Management Brand Promise

Cultivating difference makers who transform how business works.


We are a Christ-centered community of scholars and professionals pursuing academic excellence to advance the work of God in the world, developing students of character and competence as difference-makers in business and society.


The vision of APU’s School of Business and Management is to develop difference makers: students and graduates, who, through business, enhance human flourishing and restore biblical shalom socially, economically, relationally, and spiritually; share the gospel through their lives; meet human needs; and create wealth that benefits people. By doing so, we cultivate difference makers who transform how business works.
