As we enter Lipscomb’s next century of Christian business education, our alumni want to know how can Lipscomb help change this statistic. Can business graduates find more fulfillment in their careers? Is there an intersection between business and mission?
BAM - Lipscomb’s Business as Mission Center.
Lipscomb’s College of Business is working to ensure that all business students are exposed to the missional capacity they have within their given career. Academic training. Service Opportunities. Global Learning Experiences. And Lipscomb wants to take this further with the new Business as Mission Fellows Program. You can help!
