Magazine ranks business program in top 10

Business Reform magazine has named Dordt College among the top ten U.S. business colleges in four separate categories in the September/October issue of that publication. In their profile of business institutions, the magazine said the schools named to their list “are those that are taking steps to educate students in how work and faith interact on an essential level.”

After evaluating more than 100 colleges and universities nationwide, the schools that emerged were noted for “their dedication to producing strong Christian business leaders that are impacting all areas of the marketplace for the glory of God.”

Four criteria were used in the magazine’s college profiles:

1) How biblical is the foundation of the business program?

2) How much of an emphasis is placed on running a business versus just teaching students to get a job?

3) How did each of the schools’ business department heads rank other programs in overall quality?

4) What colleges offered the most business degrees and courses?

This year was the first time Business Reform magazine surveyed and researched college and university business programs. The magazine expects to make it an annual tradition.
