Business With Purpose
GCU’s Colangelo College of Business is designed to provide students with a distinctive perspective on business. Course curriculum incorporates the view of “business as a force for good.” Business success requires profits to be earned; however, businesses do not exist simply to profit. Long-term successful businesses aspire to a higher purpose—to truly serve society by solving problems and providing value to all stakeholder groups. The more value captured, the more profits are earned, and their abundance can be shared. A business’ success can serve their community and help lift-up those that are associated and in turn flourish. The more companies that are thriving, the more the standard of living can increase, which impacts better schools and healthcare for all.
Since its founding, Colangelo College of Business has taught its students the value of doing business the right way, sharing the narrative of conscious capitalism. This is the belief that business should be both profitable and meaningful. Students are encouraged to look at business as an opportunity to use their talents and profits for the advancements of others, including the individuals and communities that surround their business as well as the environment—integrating all stakeholders. This approach affords the opportunity for long-term, sustainable business success. Be it conscious capitalism or stakeholder capitalism, the concepts are the same. It is good business to lead with integrity, have a higher purpose, integrate all stakeholders and create a supportive culture in that everybody matters.
Business as Ministry
Equally important, over the course of the MBA program, students are encouraged to view business as ministry. Students are challenged to become servant leaders, to integrate their faith everyday as they work and create a purpose-minded business. When combined, integrating faith promotes ethical business practices that uphold the value of their employees as well as individuals via respect and appreciation. Business as ministry upholds a biblical view of stewardship in terms of servant leadership that results in elevating humanity.
