Did you know that 99% of all businesses in the U.S. are small? McPherson College offers a small business based curriculum that supports the entrepreneurial spirit of today’s successful business men and women.
From the Business faculty:
“My courses are no “bs” and results oriented to prepare students to win in the real world. At the same time, there is a healthy dose of humor, discussion, and life lessons to keep them enjoyable. I’m a businessman who has found coaching and mentoring to be my niche in life.”
“I have a passion for education and I love the fast-paced, ever-changing world of marketing. The opportunity to bring the two together allows me to share my enthusiasm and encourage students to keep challenging themselves and always seek new learning opportunities. Our growth potential is endless!”
“Learning by the student and building student confidence that they can learn subject matter in courses such as accounting, tax and entrepreneurship are two goals I strive to teach/share with students. I focus on “real-world” examples mixed with theory and humor. This creates a “relaxed” (yet respectful) learning environment.”
“I am fanatical about serving our students at this juncture of their life journeys. I relish each student interaction as an opportunity for the development of whole persons. I labor to deliver exciting, relevant and timely content that challenges each students’ academic achievement beyond their prior notion of ability. I am an educator at heart, impassioned to challenge, mold and cultivate minds that will lead the organizations of tomorrow.”
“After spending 30+ years in the business world, it is exciting to have the opportunity to share some of my experience and knowledge with students, who are our future. I work to engage students in applying economic concepts to everyday life, and to the events occurring around the world. I try to convey that economics isn’t just about money, economics is found in every decision that involves some type of costs/benefit analysis.”
“I bring many years of business experience, both locally and nationally, to the classroom. I am a McPherson College alumna and am passionate about the college’s mission of scholarship, participation, and service. McPherson graduates are community leaders, supervisors, parents, employees, and business owners. By teaching students the importance of business ethics, hard work, and “learning how to learn,” I hope that my students put great things into the world and their lives.”

Because of the student’s success over the last few years, the class is now responsible for managing over $350,000 of the college’s endowment.
