The Falls School of Business has a mission to “create an environment that will enable and encourage our graduates to be professionally competent, ethically sensitive, and informed by the Christian ideal of servanthood.” The Falls School of Business offers the fifth-largest MBA program in the state of Indiana. The University’s commitment to the highest educational experience possible means all classes are still taught only by faculty members. Courses are focused on learning through doing and integrate many hands-on projects both in the classroom and out.
Falls School of Business students has seven bachelor’s degrees to choose from in relevant subject areas such as Global Business, Management, Music Business, and Sport Marketing. A sampling of the minors can be obtained are Non-profit Leadership, Social Media, Entrepreneurship, or Entertainment & Music Business. There are many internship opportunities available to undergraduate students looking to gain real-world experience prior to graduation. There are three graduate-level degrees available in MBA, 10 month MBA, and DBA. The on-campus MBA programs run on a 15-week course schedule with a cohort style format. There are multiple locations for students to meet one night a week as they complete their degrees in fewer than two years.
At Anderson University, spiritual and intrapersonal growth are just as valued as a success within the classroom. This view is facilitated through many campus ministries that focus on ways to serve others while cultivating meaningful relationships, engaging with the campus and the local community, and modeling good citizenship. Outside of student ministries, there are also a variety of organizations such as Student Government Associations, social & service clubs, interest clubs, academic societies, university leadership councils, and fine arts clubs. One of the University’s strategic priorities is an intent “to build an interculturally responsive campus, to diversify the student body, and to recruit qualified faculty and staff who bring ethnic and cultural diversity.” This can be seen through their unique MOSAIC program, which supports and sponsors many activities and events on campus that encourage a global perspective and the cultivation of relationships among peers of all cultural backgrounds.
