Competing in a global market requires a strong servant-leader—one who can communicate effectively, organize a company’s workforce and resources, and confront and resolve problems in a professional and godly manner. With Maranatha’s Baptist Christian Business Management degree, you will gain specific skills in human resource management, operations management, managerial decision-making, and international business. In addition to solid spiritual and academic instruction, you’ll have opportunities to get practical experience through business internships.
Alumni in action
Matt Whitten (’04, Business Management) has been a Division Operations Manager for American Building Maintenance Parking in Chicago since graduating from Maranatha. He oversees the operations of nearly 20 parking facilities, including several residential valet, commercial self-park, and surface parking lots. “I greatly enjoy my work,” Whitten said, “and it helps that I have three coworkers and two friends with other parking companies who are all Maranatha alumni.”
Our faculty knows business
School of Business associate professor Jeff Drost came to Maranatha in 2008 after spending 13 years in the banking and financial services industry. He previously served aboard the U.S. Navy battleship USS Missouri during the first Persian Gulf conflict. Drost was instrumental in helping Maranatha become one of six Wisconsin sites for Microsoft Office Specialist certification tests. He is also pursuing a PhD in organizational leadership.

As a business management major, you will have the opportunity to work alongside your classmates to formulate a comprehensive business plan. During your senior year, you will team up with seniors from Maranatha's multiple business majors to apply what you have learned over the past few years. After compiling a full-scale business plan, your team will present your plan to members of the business faculty and a "packed house" audience of guests. The capstone project provides an excellent opportunity to apply and refine the business methods you will need as you enter your chosen field of business.
