Business Online

Whether you’re looking to start your own business, qualify for a new job opportunity, or gain the personal satisfaction of finishing your college degree, you’ll benefit from Corban’s Applied Business program, with both associate’s and bachelor’s degree options.

Corban’s online business program is designed with you in mind. It’s practical, flexible, and user-friendly, so you can reach your goal of an associate’s or bachelor’s degree even in the midst of your busy schedule.


Applied Business

As a Christian university, we approach each course from a biblical perspective, and we believe faith and work go hand-in-hand. What does it look like to be a Christian in your work environment? How can you use your work or business to honor the Lord? These are some of the questions you’ll dig into as part of your business coursework.

You’ll also take courses covering very in-demand career fields, such as project management, data analytics, and marketing. These skills are transferable to almost any career.

Your capstone course will allow you to connect with an organization or a project in the field of business that you’re most interested in and complete a team project.

Whether you are considering entrepreneurship or going to work as a manager or moving into a more traditional corporate environment, your Applied Business degree will give you a strong foundation to excel.



Corban offers both an associate’s and a bachelor’s degree in Applied Business. These degrees draw from the same pool of courses and are designed to be “stackable” so that you can earn your associate’s in two years, and then, if you choose, continue on and apply those courses toward your bachelor’s degree.

In addition to general education and elective courses, you’ll take core business courses that will help you develop essential foundational skills to support any kind of business. These core courses include:

  • Business Communications
  • Introduction to Management
  • Accounting Basics
  • Survey of Economics

  • Accounting & Finance for Managers
  • Business Law & Biblical Ethics
  • Survey of Operations Management

Program Format

  • Classes start every 8 weeks. You can begin classes in any session, and take one, two, or three classes each session, depending on what works for your schedule and goals. See the online undergraduate academic calendar.
  • Assignments are posted at the beginning of each week so you can work at your pace through the week. You’ll get weekly “welcome” instructions and a video so you know exactly what you need to do.
  • Classes are asynchronous, which means you can fit all your weekly coursework into your own schedule, regardless of the day or time.
  • Multimodal content includes a mixture of video lectures, podcasts, online discussion boards, and textbooks, which you can often access electronically, so you have multiple ways to absorb the content and get the most out of your studies.


Courses are taught by men and women who not only hold advanced degrees, but also have practical experience in their fields. They also hold a high view of the inspiration, authority, and inerrancy of Scripture and incorporate a biblical worldview into every class.

You’ll have direct engagement with your professors through the course dashboard, video presentations, online discussion boards, email communication, and timely feedback on assignments.

Our online classrooms are kept at about 15-20 students, which is half the size of most online programs. That means you not only have support in reaching your specific goals, but you also have a better opportunity to get recommendations and to have that mentor relationship to support you through and beyond your degree program.
