The purpose of the Charles M. Reeves School of Business and Economics is to fashion and nurture the spirit of entrepreneurship and creative economic endeavor. It does so by developing in students an understanding of the modern American economy, an appreciation of its power and institutional structure, and an ability to function within our economic system. The driving force of the global economy is the entrepreneurial spirit. Without this innovative and creative thrust, whether in a major corporation or a small business, the economy will stagnate.The value of the entrepreneurial spirit is not limited to business. Innovation, creativity, and ethically responsible risk- taking are needed in government, the military, education, and the church. The Reeves School of Business is dedicated to the development of this entrepreneurial spirit.
