Business Administration, BS


The Department of Business at San Diego Christian College (SDC) is committed to preparing graduates for dynamic careers in the business profession while providing students with skills in basic areas of management built upon strong Christian ethics.

Or vision is serving others by using our business knowledge to solve real problems in our community.

Katina Evans, Esq.
Acting Chair, Business Administration


Because businesses can be used to provide jobs and revenue for those who don’t have it, provide a service to assist in day to day living and businesses can be used to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world, SDC wants to prepare students to excel in this field.

A goal of our business administration program is to prepare students to enter the field of business with a biblical worldview while still performing with excellence. Whether a student wants to open a small business or join a multi-national corporation, students in the Business Department will develop knowledge and skills related to the basic functional areas of management, integrated within a biblical perspective.

SDC Business students are mentored by the professors of the Business Department to be successful in their respective fields upon graduation.

Students also have the opportunity to complete internships around the City of Santee as well as San Diego County. The Business Department seeks to provide as much experience in the workplace as possible in order to set up students to be successful after their time at the institution.

Program Details

Upon completion of their degree, students will have gained a thorough understanding of:

International business, Finance, Marketing and proficiency in the application of multiple business tools and theories as well as, ethics and the role of a Christian in the workplace while still being competitive and successful.

Students desiring a degree in Business administration can choose from two concentrations and we all so offer a minor in Business administration.

Alumni Success

SDC graduates of the Business department have gone on to earn MBA degrees, work in marketing, and a variety of businesses and some have gone on to trade in international currencies. The following are just a few alumni success stories.

My name is Corey Haines and I am a marketing manager for Cordial, a marketing communications platform for large ecommerce businesses. I manage all demand generation, including events, digital strategy, content creation, and many other facets. I also freelance on the side with marketing consulting. SDC has been the catalyst for me to discover what I’m passionate about, preparing for open doors, and making valuable connections. ~Corey Haines, 2017

The Department of Business was what brought me to San Diego Christian. The opportunities for internships and real life application to the business world was extremely helpful. The professors have been in both small business as well as large corporations and offer a wide array of wisdom when it came to real world aspects. I also enjoyed the biblical application in all of my classes, it has prepared me to be successful but also ethical in my business practices. ~Austin Long, 2016 

The business department here at SDC has helped develop me and prepare me for my future endeavors. The professors have invested in me both in class as well as in my internship at Corporate [Office with] Jack in the Box. I’ve been challenged to pursue excellence in all areas of life, and I am confident that the training I received here at SDC will empower me to be successful in the business world. ~Brad Boerneke, 2015
