We are created, called, and endowed by God to do good work. Trinity Business empowers students to discern, develop, and deploy their gifts and calling to do that work through personal, practical, and professional learning experiences.
- PERSONAL: we offer individual students the attention and opportunities they need to flourish—we are a small college community networked into the immense City of Chicago.
- PRACTICAL: we offer students the ability to apply their talents and knowledge through our project-based course-work (e.g., students who are coached by consultants to consult with clients) , Chicago Semester, and our Center for Entrepreneurship and Community Empowerment, which sponsors “speed interviewing,” a community health initiative focused on interdisciplinary research and education, a student consulting team (START Consulting), and student entrepreneurs (START Entrepreneurs).
- PROFESSIONAL: we offer students specialized Bachelor of Science degrees in Accounting, Entrepreneurial Management, Human Resource Management, Finance, and Marketing. The result is that students develop Universal Student Business Qualities* and the particular skills of strategic analysis and innovation in those distinct but related business fields.
And in return students inspire us with their innovative spirit. For example, recently two of our students, Jordan VandeKamp and Craig VanderGalien, were named semi-finalists at Chicago-based Future Founders’ UPitch2016 competition along with teams from the Big Ten and other Division 1 schools. They were the crowd favorite, winning the Venture Award.
Trinity Business is a great system to be part of!
