Experienced Faculty

Most of our business faculty have an average of 25+ years of combined business experience to complement their faculty experience. This gives our faculty invaluable, real-world perspective to share with our students based on work inside organizations like Big 4 accounting firms, Fortune 500 Corporations, small businesses, and entrepreneurial start-ups.

I have the opportunity to not just be in a caring community, but a community that fosters the same values and faith. There are so many different perspectives here from students and professors, and it creates so many opportunities to grow.

Being at Crown makes you want to stay at Crown for the rest of your life; but being at Crown also gets you excited for what God is preparing you to do after college, too.
