Christian universities may help students balance success and ethical behavior
Professional success is sometimes followed by larger paychecks and greater wealth. As a result, students of faith who have an interest in attending a Christian university may have an interest in the results of several recent University of California, Berkeley studies on financial status and behavior.
Based on the findings of seven separate studies involving more than 1,000 individuals, researchers from the university found that members of the nation’s upper class are more likely to exhibit unethical behavior, according to the university’s website.
“The increased unethical tendencies of upper-class individuals are driven, in part, by their more favorable attitudes toward greed,” said Paul Piff, lead author of the paper on the study, which was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
One way that students can prepare for their careers and not lose sight of their religious values is to enroll in Christian colleges and universities.
For instance, those who wish to prepare for a long career in the business sector can pursue a master of business administration (MBA) entirely online at North Park University. Whether students take MBA courses at one of the school’s two campuses or over the internet, they will gain the skills they seek from Christian educators, according to the institution’s website.
