The Center for Business as Mission serves as a hub for the academic study of Business as Mission and for connecting students to local and global opportunities to engage and apply what is being learned in the classroom.
Business as Mission (BAM) is an invitation to participate in profitable business as a means of leveraging the marketplace to create sustainable solutions for the common good of those in need both locally and globally.
From a theological perspective, BAM might also be thought of as a holy collision of business and mission, work and faith, and kingdom and culture.
We believe training students to see business with a missional framework will produce:
Conscious firms outperformed the overall stock market by a ratio of 10.5:1 over a 15 year period, delivering more than 1,600% total returns when the market was up just over 150% for the same period. — John Mackey, "Conscious Capitalism"
The Center for Business as Mission Fellows program is designed to offer students academic training, experiential learning, mentoring, service opportunities and global learning experience.
