Letter from Dr. Jason J. Caldwell

Welcome to the Piedmont International University Patterson School of Business. The Patterson School of Business develops practitioner-scholars who are able to use transferable managerial and business skills, such as organizational development, system-thinking, entrepreneurship, and effective communication skills to be effective leaders in a global society. This Fall 2018 will be the inaugural year of the Patterson School of Business, and we believe that God is going to establish this program as a hallmark for effective Christian business leaders throughout the triad, state, country and world.

The Patterson School of Business will offer a Bachelor of Strategic Management and a Master of Business Administration (MBA). Both programs prepare students to understand the management side of leading, while exposing them to a variety of business areas, such as entrepreneurship, marketing, accounting, and students will be able to take courses toward completing a minor in Nonprofit Management.  

The changing landscape of the workforce has created a need for well-educated and credentialed individuals that have the skills, both technical and soft that will allow them to be effective and competent in their fields. In addition to the changing demands of the workforce, our society has become increasingly global, and individuals entering the workforce should do so with a global mindset and a willingness to engage with a variety of cultures from around the world. Students in both the undergraduate and graduate programs will have the opportunity to travel internationally to study and immerse themselves in a variety of cultural experiences that will prepare them for operating in a global context while being a witness for Christ throughout the world.

The faculty of the Patterson School of Business are world-class leaders, business executives and entrepreneurs, and business scholars who have a passion for equipping our students with the necessary tools that will enable them to be the next generation of leaders and managers. If you are looking for a program that will prepare you to be a global leader, we welcome you to join us at Piedmont International University!

All my best,

Dr. Jason J. Caldwell
