The mission of the College of Business Administration is to glorify God by creating a distinctively Christian environment in which excellent teaching, combined with scholarship, promotes the intellectual, personal and spiritual growth of business students, and educates them for Christian service and leadership throughout the world. 

Many COBA alumni are living out this mission to the fullest.  By clicking on the names of our highlighted alumni, you can find out things like why they chose business as a major and how an education in the College of Business at ACU has prepared them for the job they hold today.
