7 ways a degree from JMU can change your life.
You will learn from professors who have practiced business ethics in the real world.
As part of John Melvin Christian University, you will interact with high-caliber faculty who not only are active in education and business but who have faced challenging ethical situations during their career. These professors can give you advice about how to handle yourself when you meet an ethical dilemma.
You will develop decision-making skills for difficult situations.
As you study for your degree, you will learn to evaluate many possible scenarios. And as a Christian, you will be able to view situations through a biblical lens. Difficult situations will not only be resolved by the solution that earns the most money, but by the solution that maintains your integrity as well.
You will learn how to glorify God by doing excellent work.
Majors at JMU will probably be challenging. But as you strive to do your best, you’re not just working to beat the competition or to climb the corporate ladder. You are working towards God’s plan. For His glory, and not for your own. That will set you apart in the workplace.
You will experience grace and mentorship while you’re learning.
Because the world we live in is so rigorous, it can also be competitive. At some universities, you might find yourself competing with your peers to be the best. Or you might find faculty who are harsh and unhelpful as you learn the ropes before launching your career. At a Christian university like JMU, the environment is different. Instead of being met with blunt criticism, you will experience grace and mentorship when you make mistakes. Because your college journey is the time to grow and learn. With the help of caring faculty and staff, you can grow to an even higher level.
You will see how you can make a positive impact in the world.
As a student at John Melvin University, you have huge potential to influence positive change in the world. You may join a large Christian organization and start a movement to give money to help the poor. Or you might work at a non-profit organization and help them to achieve better business practices that advance their cause. Or your positive impact might be as simple as bringing the joy of Christ into the office every day. And that is no small thing.
You will build a network with like-minded peers.
It’s always good to know people, right? Connections are important. And earning a degree alongside Christian peers will give you a strong network of friends and allies once you enter the working world.
You will learn to be a leader who operates with compassion and character.
When you do graduate and get your first job, your character will set you apart from others in your office. As you strive to be a leader among your co-workers, you can offer kindness and compassion that others might not. With Christ and your character as your foundation for the work you do, you will attract followers and you will attract success.
