“I got an almost full-ride scholarship to Texas Christian University, but I decided to go to Southwestern Adventist University (SWAU). Looking back, I couldn't have made a better decision! You can get an education anywhere, but I don’t think I would have learned what I did anywhere other than SWAU. I learned not just about business but also about how to be a Christian in business.  

I learned leadership skills that have helped me excel in my role at Edward Jones. Enactus was one of the most impactful groups I joined. It got me out of my comfort zone by having to present to business owners and executives and think of others and not myself.  

The teachers are awesome! They aren't just professors, they become your friends. The classes are small, so you really develop lasting relationships with everyone in the classroom. I would recommend to anyone who wants to get a Christian business education, go to SWAU.”

“I decided to be a pastor during my freshman year, but learning about business had always been one of my passions. Knowing about business has helped me in my ministry in a tremendous way. Learning about accounting and finance has helped me understand the financial reports that the treasurers of my churches hand me at our board meetings. Knowing about management has helped me to be a better leader and understand the many things that I can do to serve my churches better.  

“A few particular classes helped me to find a vision, a goal, and then come up with a strategy. Doing the SWOT analysis, which is a technique to help organizations identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats before making any important decisions in the church has saved me from many failures. These are things that you can only learn by taking business classes. Overall, I can say that my business degree has helped me become the pastor that I am today.”
