More than the bottom line, business education to change the world. Our faculty and staff live and breathe this motto in the hallways, classrooms, and lives of our students. The Fermanian School of Business prepares students to become effective business leaders who are committed to the highest moral and ethical values, and equipped with the necessary knowledge, skills, and values upon which to build a lifetime of selfless service and continuous learning. Our desire is to produce graduates who will assume leadership roles in their professions, communities, and the world. We seek to inspire students to reach out to developing communities, both within the United States and in foreign lands, to build where God calls them.
Alumni Spotlight: More Than The Bottom Line
"Being a business student at The Fermanian School of Business equipped me with the skills that allow me to be confident in my place and my impact in the workplace. I know I bring value when I go into an interview and that is due largely to the shaping I received at PLNU."
- Zayne Johnson (15), Accounting and Business Administration
