Each of the above words were chosen carefully to reflect not only what the College of Business (COB) does, but also what Concordia University does as a whole. Concordia's mission of developing Christian leaders shapes the COB's mission. Our role as a college is to give students the proper tools and opportunities to go and be leaders. Influencing others is one of the most important roles that leaders play. When students are empowered to go and do that, they will take on leadership roles right away. This is not something that only happens after graduation - this is something that occurs RIGHT NOW! Students in the College of Business take on the mantle of leadership from the moment they set foot on campus. It is our job as faculty, staff and fellow students to empower them.
