We believe that part of our purpose here in the College of Business is to instill a sense of purpose in our business students, no matter where they are in their daily walk. Being purposeful in one's actions is another one of our values and virtues.
Sometimes, finding one’s purpose in life can be sparked by hearing the purpose of another. With our Executives- and Entrepreneurs-in-Residence program, we invite prominent names from the business community to come and speak to and interact with our students about their work in the professional world and how their faith influences their decision making.
Speakers in this program include Wayne Huizenga Jr., son of billionaire businessman Wayne Huizenga and co-founder of three Fortune 500 companies to include owning the Miami Dolphins, Chick-fil-A's Vice President of Corporate Talent Dee Ann Smith, Sony Music Nashville Chairman & CEO Randy Goodman, Pathway Women's Business Center President Amy Bunton and former Chairman of the Board for Ace Hardware Dave Zeigler.
We also host our Heroes of Business award, which honors prominent names in the business community and allows them to share their stories of successes with our students and our College of Business chapels, which invite a variety of students, alumni and business professionals to share their testimony in an intimate setting.
