Mission & Vision


The Malone University School of Business and Leadership provides its students with an education that integrates course-specific skills and knowledge with the program-wide Christian values of stewardship and integrity. This is accomplished by a faculty with solid academic credentials, who combine experience and theory in their courses. Independent analytical thought and evaluation are encouraged in the classroom, in an atmosphere of mutual respect.


The vision of the School of Business & Leadership is to provide both undergraduate and graduate degree programs that meet the diverse educational needs and professional goals of students seeking to integrate Christian values into their work.

The School of Business Leadership is governed by four cornerstones that support the overarching vision and mission of Malone University: 

  1. Highly qualified teaching professionals. You will be surrounded by teaching professionals who can explain concepts and help you take the knowledge forward to apply the learning in the workplace.
  2. Learning rooted in ethics and biblical principles. Long before it was common for business schools to incorporate ethics into their curriculum, Malone has integrated ethical and biblical principles in every aspect of training as an imperative for education.
  3. A degree from Malone University is respected and our graduates are sought after in the workplaces in Stark County and beyond. Our graduates have a work ethic that is consistent with the needs of today's marketplace. Organizations send us glowing reviews about our alumni and applaud their success.
  4. The faculty and staff of Malone University care for the whole person and stress experiential activism. Learning is more than what we get in the classroom or from an online class. Learning is about contributing, giving back to the community and beyond.  We help our students engage the world in which we live. From campus organizations designed to implement community service projects to service-learning trips to countries that need clean water, we take seriously this calling.
