Authentic, rigorous and consequential Christian liberal arts education in economics and business.

We invite our students to engage in an authentic Christian liberal arts education that transforms our expectations of economics and business. We believe this is the best preparation for influencing and transforming business, industry and economics policy in today’s dynamic, demanding and complex world.

We provide a rigorous focus on the foundations of economics and business with appropriate specialization... at the right time and for the right reasons. We ensure that students understand theoretical and applied concepts in business and economics shaping their analytical, problem-solving and creative abilities. We provide opportunities to explore areas of focus with our majors and tracks in a way that doesn’t force a false urgency to specialize too early in your education.

We understand experience counts. We provide real-life experiences in genuine community that shape vocational insights and choices... early and often. You will gain valuable experience through internships, collaborative faculty student research, alumni and business networking events, entrepreneurial projects, business club professional development opportunities and client-led project work. We believe tangible application of your education reveals your calling, prepares you for post-graduation opportunities and positions you to compete for opportunities that lie ahead.

We value genuine community. We provide an intimate, collaborative educational experience with local and global community engagement.  This is evident in our class size, our commitment to faculty advising, the presence of alumni on campus and the constant engagement of leaders and professionals on campus in relationship with our students.  In addition, we are preparing 21st century students for a global society through our programs in Chicago, China, Jamaica, London and Philadelphia. These experiences provide the opportunity to engage the world broadly and deeply alongside other Hope students and faculty.

Dream big.  The opportunities to shape God's world are endless.
