REFLECTION AND RESPONSES

Kenman Wong, Bruce Baker, and Randal Franz - Reimagining Business Education as Character Formation

Despite historical and recent scholarship that demonstrates the need to appeal to the affective dimension of students to enable appropriate behavior, Christian business education is dominated by cognitively focused “worldview integration.” In this essay Kenman Wong, Bruce Baker, and Randal Franz argue for reimagining business education as a formational enterprise in order to facilitate a kingdom-oriented vision (telos) for business. The paper describes curricular and co-curricular practices that build “cultural liturgies” and counterformational narratives to direct student hearts/affections appropriately. Mr. Wong, Mr. Baker, and Mr. Franz serve on the business faculty at Seattle Pacific University.
