The School of Business at Olivet Nazarene University contributes to the University’s commitment to combine liberal arts with professional preparation by providing students with a foundational understanding of economic thought; enabling them to effectively pursue careers in various areas of business concentration; and developing their critical reasoning and analytical skills in order to serve as discerning stewards of God’s truth in various communities, whether family, church, enterprise, or nation.

The School seeks to provide high quality academic instruction in Accounting, Business Administration, Economics-Finance, International Business, Management Information Systems, and Marketing, challenging students to lives of faith as they pursue excellence in their field of study.

The Accounting major provides a solid background of accounting and business practices and procedures to enable the student to prepare for entry-level accounting responsibilities in public, corporate, or governmental accounting. Students must earn 128 semester hours to earn a baccalaureate degree with a major in Accounting. However, students interested in sitting for the CPA examination should be aware that 150 semester hours of credit are generally required prior to taking the CPA exam.

The Business Administration major provides students with a basic core curriculum and permits a choice of emphasis from six areas of specialization: management, philanthropy and not-for-profit, public administration, human resource management, operations management and healthcare management. The School also offers majors in economics-finance, marketing, international business and management information systems.

Please see Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Programs  for information on undergraduate to graduate program completion.
