As businesses, organizations and churches expand further into the fast-moving, global marketplace, so too has the need for leaders who cultivate significant, far-reaching impact — and who do so ethically and morally. Regent University faculty in the graduate School of Business & Leadership are as dedicated to you as they are to their areas of expertise. They are distinguished scholars, skilled practitioners and published authors who provide the global perspective you need to be effective in today’s increasingly global marketplace. But more than this, these highly skilled individuals are invested in your success.

At Regent, you can expect your faculty to mentor, guide and encourage you to make the most of your graduate experience. You’ll capitalize not only on their expertise, but also on their demonstration of Christ-first character and the difference it can make in the leader you’ll become. You can also expect high-quality academics. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks Regent’s online MBA program among the “Best” both statewide and nationally. Likewise, our leadership programs are well-respected and offer a range of in-demand concentrations.

I want to personally assure you that by choosing Regent’s School of Business & Leadership, you are choosing a program that seeks to help you advance confidently, emboldened by a servant’s heart while prepared to make the hard business decisions. Here, you will harness your creativity, business acumen and character as a Christian leader set on changing the world.
