About the Program

Sterling College has created a unique business program that prepares Sterling students for the workplace and/or graduate school immediately upon graduation. Sterling has done so with a practical and relevant core curriculum that emphasizes workplace training. Traditional business theory is also emphasized, and is taught from an application perspective.

The business department’s core course requirements were derived from a survey sent to over 1000 people in the business world. Their responses confirmed what our secondary research had indicated; businesses need people with foundational business knowledge who can also communicate, write, think critically, act ethically, listen and follow directions. The Sterling College business curriculum meets these needs.

Biblical teachings are integrated into each and every course in the business department. Students are given the opportunity to apply foundational Christian concepts to business situations with guidance from faculty members.
