Many courses in your MOL will apply the Case Study Method. Professors model the methods used to dig down to the heart of a problem, enabling you to understand different perspectives and make wise decisions as a manager in the workplace. They will bring in a Biblical perspective into the course, providing the essential ethical platform needed for authentic and servant leadership. This will develop critical thinking skills to help you:
- Identify Business Problems and Opportunities

Companies everywhere are seeking that edge in leadership and management. By knowing those you serve, you get a clear picture of who they are and what they need to succeed. Christ's model of leadership focuses on placing yourself at the level of those in your realm of influence. When we apply this model of leadership in management, real workplace transformation can occur. Paired with an expert understanding of business strategies and team dynamics, your influence has the potential to generate more than profit – you'll cultivate an empowered, thriving workplace.
